Room | 2006
Julia Barker is late for work at the Paradise Bingo, again. Struggling to make ends meet and to raise her daughters, Julia suppresses her own desires and needs to support her family. But the headaches, excruciating migraines, keep coming. Inside her splitting mind, disturbing visions erupt: water, rafters and then the blinding white windows of a warehouse sized room. The space is menacing, mysterious and seductive. The visions intensify and soon there are signs. Julia knows that she must find the room. Desperate, she robs the Bingo, abandons her family and flies to New York. Naked, in a flea bag hotel, she stands before a mirror. Her pilgrimage has begun.
