A Monster Calls

Directed by Juan Antonio Bayona
United States, United Kingdom, 2016


The monster does not come walking often. This time it comes to Conor, and it asks for the one thing Conor cannot bring himself to do. Tell the truth. This is a very touching story about a boy who feels very damaged, guilty and mostly angry.
