FILM 1469: ROOM
TRIVIA: Brie Larson isolated herself for a month and followed a strict diet in order to get a sense of what Ma and Jack were going through.
Jacob Tremblay, though an experienced actor, could not bring himself to yell at Brie Larson in the scene where he is angry about his birthday cake having no candles. Finally the director had the entire cast and crew start jumping up and down yelling and screaming until he was able to do it himself.
One of the stories that Ma tells Jack is about the Count of Monte Cristo, whose main character was imprisoned in one cell for many years as well.
Brie Larson claimed that she avoided washing her face while filming in the Room, to really make clear on-camera that she was not wearing makeup.
