    So A24 has announced that it will give Room, which will premiere at TIFF, a limited release on Oct. 16 then expand nationwide Nov. 6. Room is based on a 2010 novel about a young kid and his mother (Brie Larson) who are confined into a 10 by 10 room, but come up with a plan to escape. It is also directed by Lenny Abrahamson who did last year’s Frank and co-stars Oscar club members William H. Macy and Joan Allen. 

    Because A24 is gearing this as an awards player, I think Brie Larson could be a dark horse in the Best Actress race. It helps that she is a talent on the rise with this and Trainwreck out the same year as well as starring in the upcoming blockbuster Kong: Skull Island. 

    What do you guys think? Do you think this seems like a viable awards player? Let’s discuss.

    Larson’s a bigger name now than she was with Short Term 12. If this performance is as good as that one, she should be a lock for a nomination.

    I agree ET. She should’ve gotten a lot more recognition for her work in ‘Short Term 12’ (she received a Critic’s Choice nomination and that was pretty much it), but she is very talented and has been on the verge for a little while now. I’m hoping she delivers another slam dunk performance and finally gets the notices she should be getting.

    I wasn’t familiar with the title at all, including the book it’s based on, but that trailer…BRIE EFFING LARSON. I’ve been waiting for her moment for a while. This could be it. I hope she shakes up the race.

    This doesn’t look Oscar-bait to me.

    Loving how stacked Best Actress is becoming this year. In your face last years Best Actor contenders!

    That trailer revealed FAR too much. Watch with caution. Brie Larson rocked it tho.

    Agreed. No matter how good Brie Larson looks in it (and she does!), this doesn’t seem Oscar type.

    🙁

    I hate it when you’re (probably) right sometimes. But I am still hoping you’re wrong here. I’m hoping this film becomes a big breakout for her.
