Our take

Brie Larson stunned audiences with her intense yet measured performance in this heart-rending drama of confinement by Lenny Abrahamson (Frank), for which she won an Oscar®. Based on the award-winning novel by Emma Donoghue, this contemporary parable on parenting is as unsettling as it is moving.
