Irish film ‘Room’ gets three Independent Spirit Award nominations
25 Nov 2015 : Seán Brosnan
‘Room’ will be released to Irish cinemas on January 15th
Irish film ‘Room’ continues its awards season success with three Independent Spirit Award nominations in the categories of Best First Screenplay (Emma Donoghue), Best Female Lead (Brie Larson) and Best Editing (Nathan Nugent).

The ceremony will be held on February 26th, 2016, two days before the Academy Awards ceremony - with the Independent Spirit Awards nominations consistently seen as giving films a significant boost on the road to the Oscars.

‘Room’ has received a very positive critical response since premiering to a standing ovation at the Telluride Film Festival in September, and the film has so far won Audience Awards at festivals in Vancouver and the Hamptons, as well as the People’s Choice Award at Toronto.

‘Room’ is produced by Element Pictures and No Trace Camping with funding from the Irish Film Board and is told through the eyes of a five year old who is held captive in a room along with his mother. The film stars Brie Larson, William H. Macy and Jacob Tremblay.

‘Room’ is directed by Lenny Abrahamson with Emma Donoghue adapting the screenplay from her own novel. The film was post-produced at Screen Scene in Dublin with Outer Limits (formerly EMC) working on Picture finishing. The creative team includes Abrahamson’s regular collaborators, editor Nathan Nugent (‘Frank’) and composer Stephen Rennicks (also ‘Frank’).

‘Room’ was released in the US on October 16 through A24 and will be released in Ireland & the UK on January 15. Check out the trailer below:
