A MONSTER CALLS
Directed by: J.A. Bayona
Written by: Patrick Ness – author of the novel A MONSTER CALLS (based upon an original idea by Siobhan Dowd)
Starring: Sigourney Weaver, Felicity Jones, Toby Kebbell, Lewis MacDougall, Liam Neeson
A MONSTER CALLS is a visually spectacular and unabashedly emotional drama from director J.A. Bayona. 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall) is dealing with far more than other boys his age. His beloved and devoted mother (Felicity Jones) is ill. He has little in common with his imperious grandmother (Sigourney Weaver). His father (Toby Kebbell) has resettled thousands of miles away. But Conor finds a most unlikely ally when the Monster (portrayed by Liam Neeson in performance-capture and voiceover) appears at his bedroom window one night. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth that powerfully fuses imagination and reality.
Looking to meet people interested in film. This sounds like a fun group.
I am a film enthusiast and look forward to meeting people that have similar interests.
I love seeing films, and spent many years teaching film studies classes at a Chicago based college.
