Room Coming To Theaters In November {Giveaway}

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Review Wire Media for A24. I received information to facilitate my review as well as a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
Have you ever sat in amazement at the bond between a mother and child? After giving birth to our second child this week I'm overcome with wonder at the lengths I would go to provide a safe and happy place for her to grow up. Opening in theaters November 6th, Room is a story about parenting in dark situations and how love can flourish anywhere. Read more about this compelling story and enter for a chance to win the book!
My emotions have been on a roller coaster because of hormones, but I dare you to watch the trailer for Room and not cry. I can't imagine raising a child in those circumstances but I can definitely identify with the fierce protective instincts that come with being a mom. 

About the Movie:
Directed by Lenny Abrahamson
Starring Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay, Joan Allen and William H. Macy

Both highly suspenseful and deeply emotional, ROOM is a unique and unexpectedly tender exploration of the boundless love between a mother and her child under the most harrowing of circumstances.

 ROOM tells the extraordinary story of Jack (Jacob Tremblay in a breakout performance), a spirited 5 year-old who is looked after by his loving and devoted Ma (Brie Larson, SHORT TERM 12, TRAINWRECK).  Like any good mother, Ma dedicates herself to keeping Jack happy and safe, nurturing him with warmth and love and doing typical things like playing games and telling stories. Their life, however, is anything but typical—they are trapped—confined to a windowless, 10-by-10-foot space, which Ma has euphemistically named “Room.” Ma has created a whole universe for Jack within Room, and she will stop at nothing to ensure that, even in this treacherous environment, Jack is able to live a complete and fulfilling life.   But as Jack’s curiosity about their situation grows, and Ma’s resilience reaches its breaking point, they enact a risky plan to escape, ultimately bringing them face-to-face with what may turn out to be the scariest thing yet: the real world.  ROOM also stars three-time Academy Award® nominee Joan Allen and Academy Award® nominee William H. Macy. 

 At once a taut narrative of captivity and freedom, an imaginative trip into the wonders of childhood, and a profound portrait of a family’s bonds and fortitude, ROOM is a beautifully transcendent experience based on the award-winning global bestseller by Emma Donoghue. Director Lenny Abrahamson (FRANK) remains faithful to the novel while bringing Jack, Ma and their entirely singular world to heart-pounding and intensely cinematic life. ROOM demonstrates the triumphant power of familial love even in the darkest of circumstances, and is sure to take its place among the most emotionally affecting films to ever explore the bond between parents and children.
