Story: A mother and her child are held under virtual house arrest by a man. Their only outlet to reality is a television and a skylight. They manage to escape. But will they also be able to rebuild their lives again after a past of such intolerable and despicable cruelty? And will their lives ever be the same again?

Review: While we've all been blitzed by blockbusters in recent times, the sound of a solid story still resounds underground - a tale that rests easy on the bedrock of performances that seem more human than human. Reel imitating real in a beautiful sense.

Ma, also known as Joy in the film, (Larson) and Jack (Tremblay) have been tormented and troubled tenfold by Old Nick (Bridgers), a knave who keeps his captives quiet in a shed, cloaked under a veil of fear and loathing, with a great deal of paranoia and psychosis too. Joy is routinely raped by Jack but by some measure of superwoman courage and resilience, she manages to keep her kid Jack away from any influences mean and nasty. But there is only so much that she can do and bear, and there is only so much that she can take, before her own resources fail her.

The camera work is suitably intimate and unobtrusive. To the director's credit, you almost feel that you are a fly on the wall - privy to a family's heartrending tale of troublesome trial and redemption. Sure, those among you who want to see something fast-paced will find yourselves in the wrong cinema hall. But if you just open your mind and let yourself be immersed in this narrative, you might find a few rich rewards.

More than anything though, this is a beautiful tale of a mother's love for her child, selfless and pure. Joy will do anything - and she does indeed - to ensure the well being of her charge. And yet, their existence is curiously symbiotic. Very few movies are able to touch upon the bond between a mother and child with such tender grace, set in contemporary times.
