Brie Larson shines in this movie as she is the mother of a child who has never ventured to the outside world.

This movie is very heavy, and Brie Larson is amazing. She won the 2015 Oscar for Best Female Actress. This is a film that is not for the feint of heart, but still tells a story that is relatable and real at the same time. This film may leave people in tears, but it’s a film worth watching, and a film that some may have missed. It'd be great for a night in.
