If you haven't seen it yet, then you've no longer got any excuse.

Nominated for four Oscars - including Best Picture, Best Director for Lenny Abrahamson, and Best Adapted Screenplay for Emma Donoghue who worked from her own novel - and winning Brie Larson the award for Best Actress, everyone who has ever seen Room has been effected by it in one way or another.

Telling the story of a young boy (an amazing performance by newcomer Jacob Tremblay) and his mother (Larson) as they live their day-to-day lives as the captives of a dangerous man, Room gets its TV premiere on Channel 4 tonight at 9pm, and we can't recommend it enough.
