SANTA MONICA, CA (February 29, 2016) – Academy Award® and Golden Globe® winner Brie Larson (Best Actress, Room, 2015) and Screen Actors Guild Award nominee Jacob Tremblay (Best Supporting Actor, Room, 2015) bring to life the fearless determination of a mother and child who risk everything to break out of captivity and embrace their freedom in the critically acclaimed film ROOM, arriving on Blu-ray (plus Digital HD) and DVD (plus Digital) on March 1 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Adapted from The New York Times best-selling novel, and theatrically released by A24, the 2016 Oscar®-winning ROOM is a “one-of-a-kind, must-see experience…nothing short of astonishing!” (New York Post). Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh, the “extraordinary” (People) film has been named one of the best movies of the year by Vulture, Entertainment Weekly, IMDB, Indiewire, and the Los Angeles Times, among many others. Larson has won Best Actress awards from the Independent Spirit Awards, Screen Actors Guild, National Board of Review, and multiple film critics’ societies for her portrayal of the fiercely protective Ma. Directed by Lenny Abrahamson (Frank), the “life-affirming and awe-inspiring” (Collider) story features heart-wrenching performances by Academy Award® nominees Joan Allen (Best Actress, The Contender, 2000; Best Supporting Actress, The Crucible, 1996; Best Supporting Actress, Nixon, 1995) and William H. Macy (Best Supporting Actor, Fargo, 1995) as parents who have finally been given back their daughter, and Sean Bridgers (HBO’s “Deadwood”) as the man who abducted her.
