Guillermo Del Toro’s protégé J.A. Bayona (The Orphanage) brings us this beautiful and moving fantasy drama based on the critically acclaimed book by Patrick Ness.
12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall), dealing with his mother's (Felicity Jones) illness, a less-than-sympathetic grandmother (Sigourney Weaver), and bullying classmates, finds a most unlikely ally when a Monster appears at his bedroom window. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth. Toby Kebbell plays Conor's father, and Liam Neeson stars in performance-capture and voiceover as the nocturnally visiting Monster of the title.
Join us for a special Book Club screening of A Monster Calls featuring Dr. Helen Limon, who teachers Writing for Children and Young Adults at Newcastle University and whose research focusses on and the social impact of fiction.
