"Energetically drawing on the psychological thriller, romance and fairy tales, White Room seems equally inspired by Emily Dickinson's poetry as by Hitchcock's Psycho and Rear Window. With this film, Rozema opens up questions about the demands of fiction and storytelling in general, and not only our cultural obsession with happy endings, but also the expectations on filmmakers to provide audiences with neat closure."
