Calling all film lovers across Southwestern Ontario! Here’s your chance to watch critically-acclaimed drama ROOM with Academy Award nominated screenwriter Emma Donoghue in attendance! We are very excited to have an Oscar-nominated artist coming to Sarnia to participate in this one-of-a-kind event.
ROOM tells the story of five-year-old Jack (Jacob Tremblay), who lives captive in a single-room shed with his mother (Brie Larson) and has never been allowed to go outside. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards, with star Brie Larson taking home the Oscar for Best Actress. Her young co-star, Vancouver-born Jacob Tremblay, has also nabbed a couple of awards for his performance, most notably the Best Actor statue at this year’s Canadian Screen Awards!
The screening will take place at the Imperial Theatre in downtown Sarnia on August 12 at 7:30pm. Stick around after the film for an evening with ROOM author and screenwriter Emma Donoghue, who will be coming down from her home in London, ON. to answer your questions about the film.
