Win tickets to see A Monster Calls – watch the trailer here
PUBLISHED: 07:19 05 January 2017
A beautiful tale of loss and grief is explored in A Monster Calls, a film which sees a young boy seek the help of a tree monster to deal with his mother’s terminal illness.
The film has been adapted by Patrick Ness from his evocative novel of the same name, and follows youngster Conor (Lewis MacDougall) as he struggles to come to grips with the inevitable death of his mother (Felicity Jones, of Rogue One).
Help comes in the unlikely form of a tree monster, and together they explore the difficulty of growing up and the complex realities of adulthood.
The tree monster is voiced by Liam Neeson, an Oscar winner for Schindler’s List in the 1990s, and known for his roles in the Taken series and a number of other blockbuster hits.
