All Jack knows is Room. It's where he and Ma live, eat, sleep, play... Old Nick brings them food and clothes, takes away their trash - but Jack doesn't interact with him at all since Ma hides him safely in Wardrobe each night. To Jack, his world is full of wonders and fun, but to Ma it is a prison and has been for the past 7 years since Old Nick kidnapped her.

Dark and disturbing. However, the voices are very engaging and realistic. Character reactions and dialogue are spot-on.
