Liam Neeson, Felicity Jones and Sigourney Weaver star in Spanish director J.A. Bayona’s (The Orphanage, The Impossible) heartbreaking, magical fable, based on Patrick Ness’ novel, about a young boy struggling to face loss. Set in a northern town, it sees 12-year-old Connor (Lewis MacDougall) thrown into turmoil by his mother’s (Jones) illness. Scared and angry, he’s confronted one night by a monstrous tree come to life (voiced by Neeson). With shades of Guillermo Del Toro’s gothic inventiveness, A Monster Calls is overwhelmingly moving; combining superbly pitched drama with beautiful watercolour animation, it’s a fantastical tale of real-life tragedies and truths for all ages.
