Sunday Treat comes early! The first teaser trailer is out for Room! The Canadian/Irish co-pro brings Emma Donoghue’s excellent book to the screen and is set to screen at TIFF and other fests this fall. The trailer reveals more of the story than one expects in a teaser, but it looks as if fans of the book have no need to worry. (Room was recently included in this year's summer movie reading list.) Brie Larson’s performance also looks quite promising!

Synopsis: Told through the eyes of five-year-old-Jack, Room is a thrilling and emotional tale that celebrates the resilience and power of the human spirit. To Jack, the Room is the world... it's where he was born, where he and his Ma eat and sleep and play and learn. But while it's home to Jack, to Ma it's a prison. Through her fierce love for her son, Ma has managed to create a childhood for him in their 10-by-10-foot space. But as Jack's curiosity is building alongside Ma's own desperation she knows that Room cannot contain either indefinitely. Starring Brie Larson, Jacob Tremblay, Joan Allen, Sean Bridgers and William H. Macy.
