RE: Room

RE: Room

I enjoyed the book ( http://www.bookcrossing.com/---/11079894 ), but found it so harrowing that I don't care to see a screen version. I see from IMDB that the film opens on October 16 ( http://www.imdb.com/---/combined ), and has had some preview showings; opinions seem quite positive.

I'm in two minds about it as adaptations can be so different from the book. It's a particular bugbear of mine when the main characters names are changed, why do they do that? What is the point? But I digress....

With the book being told from Jack's point of view, I'm intrigued to see how the film deals with this. Part of the charm for me was his innocent musings & I can't see how they could be portrayed on screen. I probably will watch it, but not till its on TV ;o)

I saw this last week and 'enjoyed' it. I think it pretty much followed the book but it has been a while since I read it. I thought Jacob Tremblay who plays Jack was excellent as well.
