Interesting Fact: Brie Larson isolated herself in her home for a month without a phone or internet and followed a strict diet in order to get a sense of what Ma and Jack were going through. Larson has said that because she considers herself an introvert who prefers to stay at home, she thought that her month of isolation would be a vacation, but towards the last week she became very depressed and would cry all day.
Review: A devastatingly written, directed and performed piece of work surrounding a girl and her son confined to the claustrophobic shed in the back garden of a kidnapper. The movie deals with all sorts of sensitive material and handles them all brilliantly and whilst it relies heavily on the performances of Brie Larson and Jake Trelamby, who were both phenomenal (and got Larson the Oscar), along with her parents, Joan Allen & William H Macy, it could still stand on it's own due to the compelling and emotional nature of the story throughout. Having said that, it's some hard viewing at times and I can understand that it's not for everyone.
