Introduced by Lenny Abrahamson, Stephen Rennicks and Emma Donoghue in conversation with John Kelly  

 The world première of Room with live score performed by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra, introduced by director Lenny Abrahamson, composer Stephen Rennicks and novelist/adaptor and Emma Donoghue in conversation with John Kelly.

Extraordinary, powerful, both heart-breaking and life-affirming, Room is one of the most remarkable films of recent times. Adapted by Emma Donoghue from her own best-selling novel, the film was anchored by superb performances by Brie Larson and Jacob Tremblay. It received rave reviews and richly deserved recognition including an Oscar (as well as three more nominations), a BAFTA, an SAG award and countless critics’ choice awards. The score by Rennicks – one of Ireland’s top film composers and a regular Abrahamson collaborator – was described as ‘superbly empathetic’ by the Guardian. Seven years on from the weekend of the original release,  join us for this very special evening and a world first.   

Presented by the RTÉ Concert Orchestra by arrangement with STUDIOCANAL and Element Pictures
