Bursting with charisma, incredible costumes, and a youthful energy, White Room is a modern fairy tale and deeply personal film that tackles obsession, passion, and celebrity culture through a multitude of genres. Norman is a naive writer who stumbles upon a terrible incident involving a famous singer. Through a series of events, he falls for a woman who has an unknown connection to the singer, while dealing with his own guilt of what he witnessed. “White Room is a semi-unknown masterpiece … A queer-coded character drama about sensitivity, identity, and idealism, its deeply moving arc needs to be more widely seen” (Grant Phipps, Tone Madison).
