LENNY ABRHAMSON’S ‘Room’ to open Aspen Film Festival August 31, 2015

Lenny Abrahamson’s eagerly anticipated adaptation of international best seller, Room, has been selected to open the 37th Annual Aspen Filmfest,

Adapted by  Emma Donoghue from her own book, the film stars Brie Larson, Joan Allen and William H. Macy (Shameless, Magnolia), and tells the harrowing story of a young woman (Larson) and her 5-year-old son, Jack, who live in confinement in a 10-foot by 10-foot single room. The room is the only home Jack has ever known, but as his curiosity is building alongside his Mothers own desperation, she knows it cannot contain either indefinitely…

An Element Pictures and No Trace Camping production, produced by Ed Guiney and David Gross, the movie was filmed at Pinewood Studios and on location in Toronto, and was edited here at Screen Scene by Nathan Nugent, with full sound post taking place here and at Ardmore Sound. Screen Scene also provided all the films VFX.

One of Colorado’s longest running festivals, this years Annual Aspen Filmfest will run from September 25-30. For more information you can check out the official website HERE.

Room (which is also scheduled to screen at Toronto International Film Festival next month) will go on limited cinema release October 16th. Check out the fantastic trailer for the film below:
