The 9-year-old boy is a brilliant young performer of Jack, the son of Brie Larson’s Ma, in the Oscar-winning film titled “Room”. For this part, Tremblay has got a critical acclaim.
Julia Roberts is one of the lead actresses in Hollywood and there is no denying this fact due to her great collection of works where she has been starring. Jodie Foster’s Money Monster is her recent appearance on screens and now she is set to become a mother of a boy with a tragic story. This role is within her powerful experience.
The story is based on R.J. Palacio’s 2012 book. The main character of the story is Auggie Pullman. He is a young boy who has a facial deformity. Together with his parents, he has been at hospitals for the major period of his life. In the film, a boy should attempt at least to fit in at a new school and prove to everyone that he is an ordinary kid who should be treated in the same way as others are. He is eager to teach people that beauty can be found not only outside, the more important thing is the insides. We should not judge a book by its cover. Surely, it is one of the significant lessons life can teach us. One can hardly find an ideal in which he or she has kept believing for the entire life. Every one of us has some disadvantages the society blames us for. But are these disadvantages, no matter whether they are of physical or mental nature? The film is aiming at raising awareness and make people think of what is happening to the moral values.
When will the picture come off? According to the updated info, the worldwide premiere is scheduled for April 7, 2017. This release date is officially confirmed. So keep on looking forward to the spring debut!
