The movies can put a positive spin on anything… If The Martian is a friendly version of dark Ridley Scott sci-fi, Room domesticates repugnant horror with spiritual uplift… “Ma” becomes a stand-in for every young mother isolated by child care, chained by domestic servitude, and abused at night by a man who’s out all day in a world she may never see again. This dismal parody of heterosexual coupling reinforces the idea that it’s time to have families in some new way.

[After Ma and Jack escape,] Room becomes generic, diluted, almost like a Hallmark series with the troubled family trying to find footing in the chaos around them. The spatial control of the earlier part is stretched out, and the energy sapped from the original idea.

It’s an incredibly moving and detailed work. By shunning melodrama to focus on physical and emotional minutiae, it’s a film about the imperceptible struggles of getting through each dark day.
