Film - A Monster Calls


Focus Features have released a behind the scenes featurette for A Monster Calls, out in cinemas in January...

You can read VentSpleen's spoiler-free review of the film from London Film Festival here.

The monster does not come walking often. This time it comes to Connor, and it asks for the one thing Connor 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. He struggles at school with bullies, and pity looks from everyone, and at home with his mother's sickness. Will Connor overcome his problems? Will everything be okay? Will Connor be able to speak the truth?

Directed by J A Bayona and with a screenplay adapted by Patrick Ness from his own book of the same name, the film stars Liam Neeson, Felicity Jones, Lewis MacDougall and Sigourney Weaver. Find out what the stars and director think about the film in this new featurette.
