Summary: Hosted by Andrew Quinn and Darren Mooney, The 250 is a fortnightly trip through some of the best (and worst) movies ever made, as voted for by Internet Movie Database Users. New episodes are released Saturdays at 6pm GMT. This week, a special crossover episode with When Irish Eyes Are Watching, an Irish film podcast wherein Alex, Clíona and Séan take at a look at films connected to the Emerald Isle. The 250 and When Irish Eyes Are Watching are crossing over for a St. Patrick's Day treat. Lenny Abrahamson’s Room. Jack has spent his entire life within the confines of "Room", the space which comprises the totality of his world. He knows every inch of the ten-by-ten space in which he was raised, in which he lives day-by-day with Ma between visits from Old Nick. However, as Jack turns five, he is forced to confront some uncomfortable realities about the world within which he lives and the world beyond "Room." At time of recording, it was ranked the 151st best movie of all time on the Internet Movie Database.
