If there was one thing we learned last Oscar season, it was that Jacob Tremblay is basically the cutest kid ever. He was endearing in Room and even more adorable on its press tour, winning everyone with his tiny sharp suits and gleeful Star Wars fandom. But now he’s using his wide-eyed innocent schtick for evil.
Shut In stars Tremblay as Tom, a boy traumatized by the loss of his parents. He catches the attention of Mary, a psychiatrist (Naomi Watts) who’s reeling from a car accident that killed her husband and left her teenage stepson (Stranger Things‘ Charlie Heaton) in a catatonic state.
