While accepting the eventual loss of a loved one comes as an unpleasant truth to everyone, the constant denial of pain and recourse to comforting lies aren't going to be much help.
Based on the award-winning novel by Patrick Ness, A Monster Calls follows the story of a 12-year-old boy named Conor O'Malley who is dealing with his mother's grave illness. With his emotions getting all mixed up, he summons an ancient yew tree which transforms into a monster who has three stories to tell. After the last story is told, Conor should tell his own story in return.
The film has powerful, tear-jerking moments that will allow you to confront the monster in you! We got the chance to see the exclusive premiere of A Monster Calls and we guarantee that aside from the stunning visuals from director J.A. Bayona, the film itself will hit you right in the core!
