Screen Actors Guild Award Win for ROOM

Room 230x240-15

Congratulations to Brie Larson

Congratulations to Brie Larson, who has won the Screen Actors Guild Award for Best Actress for her performance in Room.

This marks the latest in a long series of award wins for Larson, including the Golden Globe for Best Actress. She has also been nominated for an Academy Award® for her performance.

Directed by Lenny Abrahamson, written by Emma Donoghue and produced by Ed Guiney for Element Pictures, Room has garnered widespread praise from critics and has earned four Academy Award® nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director.

Told through the eyes of five-year-old-Jack (Tremblay), Room is a thrilling and emotional tale that celebrates the resilience and power of the human spirit. To Jack, Room is the world…. It’s where he was born, it’s where he and his Ma (Larson) eat and sleep and play and learn. But while it’s home to Jack, to Ma it’s a prison. Through her fierce love for her son, Ma has managed to create a childhood for him in their ten-by-ten-foot space. But as Jack’s curiosity is building alongside Ma’s own desperation – she knows that Room cannot contain either indefinitely.

Element Pictures’ Ed Guiney (The Lobster, Frank, What Richard Did) produced Room with David Gross (What If, Goon). Executive producers are Andrew Lowe (The Lobster, Frank, The Wind that Shakes the Barley) for Element Pictures and Jeff Arkuss (What If) and Jesse Shapira (What If, Goon) for No Trace Camping. Emma Donoghue, Rose Garnett (Film 4), Tessa Ross (Film 4), and David Kosse (Film 4) also serve as executive producers. Irish finance for the film came from Bord Scannán na hÉireann/the Irish Film Board.

Room is currently on release in Irish cinemas.
