If you loved the harrowing and haunting novel Room, you're in for a treat. 

Emma Donoghue’s international best selling novel has been adapted into new stage show. 

The Abbey Theatre and Theatre Royal Stratford East co-production will be in the Abbey Theatre in Dublin this month. 

The film adaption won Academy Awards, Golden Globes and BAFTAs, and the theatre version of the novel has received critical acclaim. 

'Kidnapped as a teenage girl, Ma has been locked inside a purpose built room in her captor’s garden for seven years,' reads the theatre description of the play. 

'Her five year old son, Jack, has no concept of the world outside and happily exists inside Room with the help of Ma’s games and his vivid imagination where objects like Rug, Lamp and TV are his only friends.'

'But for Ma the time has come to escape and face their biggest challenge to date: the world outside Room.'

The show is running from June 23 to July 22, and tickets are still available, so get booking!



Brie Larson has fast become one of our favourite actresses since her performance in Room.

And now the Oscar winner is engaged! Her long-time boyfriend, musician Alex Greenwald, whisked her away to Tokyo to propose in March, E! News has confirmed.

The pair are known for keeping their relationship quiet and have rarely been out in public together since their early days.

However, throughout Brie's career, she's made many references to him that are just too adorable.

"I'd like to thank my boyfriend, Alex Greenwald, for making me pasta and taking care of our puppy while I made this movie," she said at the Gotham Independent Film Awards back in 2013. Awww.

Last Saturday, Brie was seen wearing a sparkler on her ring finger on SNL which prompted the rumours and Alex's rep confirmed the news today.

She's going to be such a gorgeous bride!


Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay's on-screen connection as mother and son in Room is just incredible, but even off screen they're great friends.

After filming together, doing countless interviews, the full awards circuit and tonnes of promotion all over the world, the pair have a gorgeous bond, despite their 17 year age gap – Jacob is nine and Brie is 26.

Last night the pair marked their final day of promotion for the film with a toast in Japan, just as they had done two years previously when the film had its first screening at the Telluride Film Festival.

"28 weeks ago(according to Instagram) @roomthemovie premiered at the #telluridefilmfestival. After the screening @jacobtremblay and I toasted. He had chocolate milk and I had red wine," Brie wrote. 

"I remember feeling so vulnerable after sharing this movie with the world for the first time; unsure of what was to come.

"Last night marked what may be our final toast to this film . He had a soda and I had sake. We are in Japan."

The actress went on to share some lovely memories of the time she had spent with her young co-star.

"Together we have travelled the globe, spent almost two years hanging out, playfully arguing about things like who can hold their breath longer and talking at length about Room.

"At its core, every step of the way has been taken with love. We were generous and patient with each other. We laughed a lot, especially when it was hard.

"We picked each other up, answered for the other when one was tired and always kept silliness alive.

"Thank you Room for bringing us together. Thank you Room for uniting us with the rest of the world. Thank you to everyone who shared this journey with us. I will never ever forget it."

Jacob shared Brie's post over on his own Instagram, saying he had had "the best time" and adding "bye bye room," in an echo of the film's last line.

We're going to miss these two together… now to wait for Emma Donoghue to write a sequel.


It's rare that a Best Actor and Best Actress from the same Oscars year feature in a film together – so rare, in fact, that it hasn't happened since 1997's As Good As it Gets – but this year that's exactly what went down. 

Leonardo DiCaprio may have scooped the Academy Award for his role in The Revenant last Sunday night, but he also makes an appearance in one other very noteworthy film from this year's contenders, Lenny Abrahamson's Room.

Well, kinda.

US studio A24, who distributed the film Stateside, took to Twitter earlier this week to point out that Leo's face does indeed appear just a few feet away from Best Actress winner Brie Larson during one scene:

See what they did there? 

Unlike Leo's cameo, both Helen Hunt and Jack Nicholson had moving, speaking roles in As Good As It Gets, before being awarded Best Actress and Best Actor respectively for their parts in the film.

If you ask us though, the role of Teen Heartthrob Poster should definitely have earned Leo some kind of award,



Okay so we will be the first to admit that having a slight obsession with a 9-year-old is borderline creepy, but we simply cannot get enough of rising star Jacob Tremblay. 

From his ridiculously good looking parents to his wise-beyond-his-years chatshow persona, the Room star is taking Hollywood and our hearts by storm. 

With none other than his co-star Brie Larson being his all time BIGGEST fan, we can say with a certain degree of confidence that this kid is uber-talented and seriously going places. 

While on an impressive press stint for his highly-praised performance in Room, here is 7 times Jacob Tremblay owned this awards season. 

7) His celebrity selfie collection 

The kid has got some serious game 

6) That time he showed Conan O' Brien his red carpet game face 

His 'blue steel' interpretation would put Zoolander to shame 


5) His face when he received a Star Wars costume from Ellen 

And we were reminded by his sheer excitement that he is actually still just a kid 


4) When he reminded us all that he has a "delicious face" 

And it is the most adorable face ever 


3) When his dance moves literally owned the Critics Choice after-party 

Nailed it 


Celebrating the #criticschoiceawards to my favorite jam!! Thank-you!!! #roomthemovie

They are genuine bosom buddies

7) His Critics Choice award acceptance speech 

It was too much <3 



Jacob Tremblay has been giving us endless joy while on his extensive press circuit for his amazing turn in Lenny Abrahamson's Room. 

Whether taking selfies with Leonardo DiCaprio, giving the cutest acceptance speeches ever or hitting the red carpet in his dapper little suits, the nine-year-old has been a breath of fresh air this awards season. 

And he is continuing to slay as he does his best red carpet looks for Conan O' Brien on his US television show. 

The Canadian actor displayed his talent for comedy as he showcased three suspiciously similiar takes on the 'blue steel' look made famous by the Zoolander films. 

We just can't cope with how adorable this kid is. 

Watch the clip below: 



What a sweetie.

Nine year old Jacob Tremblay delivers a heart-wrenching performance in the Oscar-nominated Room, and he proved last night that he's just as much of a winner off screen.

Stepping on stage to speak after winning the Critics' Choice Best Young Actor Award, Jacob declared the win as "super cool," adding that it must have been "a super hard vote because of all the other great actors in this category."

After struggling to reach the microphone – even while standing on a box – Jacob soon found his feet and went on to thank Team Room "who is Lenny, Brie, Emma, Ed and, um, all the other producers over there."

How adorable?! And we're clearly not the only ones who think so:

Jacob finished up his speech by saying he knew exactly where to put his award… "On the shelf beside my Millennium Falcon."

While little Jacob isn't up for an Oscar for his role in Room, he'll no doubt get a chance to step on stage at some point.

The Irish-made film is up for a whole host of awards on the night including Best Director, Best Actress and Best Picture.



We have been anticipating the release of Room for well over a year now and thank goodness, we don't have to wait much longer. 

To appease our appetites, a brand new trailer has been released and it has pretty much cemented the fact that this will no doubt be the first film we go to see in 2016. 

Based on the hit novel of the same name written by Irish author Emma Donoghue, the movie version has been tackled by esteemed Irish director Lenny Abrahamson, known for such titles as Frank and What Richard Did

Room tells the story of a mother, played by up and coming American actress Brie Larson, and her 5-year-old son who are finally released back into the world after years spent in captivity. 

The film is already receiving highly positive reviews and there are murmurs that the film may enjoy some Oscar nominations at the 2016 awards. 

Room will be in cinemas on the 15th of January, but in the meantime enjoy the trailer below. 




Has their latest tour gone straight to their heads?!

Little Mix are thought to be the good girls of pop but they definitely threw that image out the window after trashing their dancers’ dressing room – and then boasting about it!

The girls launched their UK tour this week in Glasgow and it seems Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock are really getting into the wild pop star lifestyle!

Perrie and Leigh-Anne completely ransacked the room where their dancers hang out, overturning chairs and putting them on the sofas and tables.

The girls then posted snaps of the damage to Instagram, saying, “Casually trashing the dancers dressing room! so naughty!”

The room-trashing comes after 20-year-old Perrie told paparazzi they could ‘kiss her ass!’

“I think we stand for being yourself and being confident,” said.

“[But] it is difficult, no matter how confident you are – if you are caught off-guard by paps at a horrible angle, of course it’s going to upset you. You’re not made of stone.

“At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter. Paps can kiss my a*s!”

We’re loving this fierce new attitude!
