A MONSTER CALLS
2016, Focus Features, 108 min, USA/Spain, Dir: J.A. Bayona

At the center of this visually spectacular drama from director J.A. Bayona (THE IMPOSSIBLE) is 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall). With a terminally ill mother (Felicity Jones), a less-than-sympathetic grandmother (Sigourney Weaver) and bullying classmates, it seems the world has turned against the boy. But Conor finds an unlikely ally when an ancient Monster (voiced by Liam Neeson) appears at his bedroom window to guide him on a journey of courage, faith and truth. “A sensitive and beautifully made lesson in the limits and power of storytelling.” - John DeFore, The Hollywood Reporter.
