Keswick School presents A Monster Calls

12-year- old Conor (Lewis MacDougall), dealing with his mother's illness, a less-than- sympathetic grandmother 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. Liam Neeson stars in performance-capture and voiceover as the nocturnally visiting Monster of the title.

Lewis MacDougall will introduce the film and host a Q&A afterwards.

Critics

“Part fairy tale/creature feature/domestic melodrama, this adds up to far more than a 'one boy and his monster' story - and is a tougher emotional journey as a result.”
