As her son gets older it becomes more obvious that they cannot continue forever and when he reaches 5 years old they hatch a plan to escape. The movie follows their attempt and what happens to them when they break free, and the little boy experiences the outside world for the first time.
Based on the best-selling novel from Emma Donoghue, the movie has already scooped a plethora of award nominations and wins - including Best International Independent Film (British Independent Film Awards) and Movie Of The Year (AFI - American Film Institute Awards).
I am a big fan of Studiocanal movies, they're intelligent and thoughtful, and usually feature a great cast and crew. Imitation Game starred Benedict Cumberbatch, and Rush stars Chris Hemsworth (also known as Thor). Brie Larson is probably best known to date for her roles in Community (the TV series) and 21 Jump Street.
