A Monster Calls - now showing!

Posted 2 January 2017 about A Monster Calls.

A visually spectacular and unabasedly emotional drama from director J.A. Bayona (The Impossible).

12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall) is dealing with far more than other boys his age. His beloved and devoted mother (Felicity Jones) is ill. He has little in common with his imperious grandmother (Sigourney Weaver). His father (Toby Kebbell) has resettled thousands of miles away. But Conor finds a most unlikely ally when the Monster (portrayed by Liam Neeson in performance-capture and voiceover) appears at his bedroom window one night. 

Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth that powerfully fuses imagination and reality.

LEWIS MacDOUGALL: CONNOR; FELICITY JONES: MUM; TOBY KEBBELL: DAD; LIAM NEESON: THE MONSTER; SIGOURNEY WEAVER: GRANDMA; JUAN ANTONIO BAYONA: DIRECTOR;

Based on the best selling novel A MONSTER CALLS by Patrick Ness.
