Den of Geek is proud to host an exclusive screening of A Monster Calls in New York City on January 3rd, and we want you to join us!
Based on the beloved book by Patrick Ness and directed by J.A. Bayona (The Impossible), A Monster Calls stars Felicity Jones, Sigourney Weaver, Lewis MacDougall, Toby Kebbell, and Liam Neeson in performance-capture and voiceover as the nocturnally visiting Monster of the title. In our review of the film, we praised the “dark fable” as “an unforgettable experience.”
Here’s the short synopsis, courtesy of Focus Features:
“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.”
