Preview: Jacob Tremblay on Room: “She just kept on crying and crying.”

DIY spoke to Tremblay and director Lenny Abrahamson about the film: here’s a sneak peak of the interview.

It doesn’t come out in UK cinemas until January 2016, but after getting rave reviews at numerous festivals earlier this year Room has deservedly garnered plenty of awards buzz.

Directed by Lenny Abrahamson, the film focuses on the relationship between a Mother (Brie Larson) and her five year-old son Jack (Jacob Tremblay), who has spent his entire life in an 11x11 space he affectionately calls Room. To explain why that is the case would be to spoil the opening 20 minutes – this is a film best seen with as little information as possible – but it’s a very moving film powered by two exceptional lead performances.

We spoke to Abrahamson and Tremblay earlier this month, quizzing them on everything from the awards attention to working on intense scenes on set. We’ll bring you the full video interview later this month, but to tide you over until then here’s a particularly adorable response from the young Tremblay when we asked him about recovering from a difficult scene…

“Brie couldn’t snap out of it. She just kept on crying and crying and crying. I just had to cheer her up! I’d say “Why are you still crying? He said cut 30 minutes ago!”

Room opens in UK cinemas on 15th January 2016.
