These two films tackle heavy subjects: kidnapping, rape, child molestation/abuse.
Obviously they are important films and it is encouraging to know there are filmmakers who have the courage and tenacity to get these types of difficult films made.
I had a hard time with the first act of Room and was grateful when the story progressed past it. That being said these types of films and story tellers are most interesting to me.
Although I love to laugh like the next person, the dark stories and the creative minds that make them are the most compelling to me. To be able to shine light on the darkness in the world is a gratifying experience as an actor and I think it’s safe to assume the actors in these films probably agree, especially since they are not easy to do.
