A Monster Calls screening at 7.30pm Friday 12th May

A Monster Calls deftly balances dark themes and fantastical elements to deliver an engrossing and uncommonly moving entry in the crowded coming-of-age genre.

And after the film we will be joined by Lewis McDougall who plays Conor in the film for a question and answer opportunity after the film. Liam_Neeson_Lewis_MacDougall_a_monster_calls_film_interview-

A piercing sadness runs through this impressive adaptation, by Patrick Ness, of his acclaimed young adult novel. You ache for Conor, the 13-year-old boy at the heart of the story, as he struggles to process bereavement. You will be likely to weep with him as he comes to terms with the loss of his mother. This emotional authenticity, the palpable pain in a remarkable central performance from Lewis MacDougall, is both the film’s main asset and a factor that makes it a tough sell. This is not just a film about grief; it’s a film that immerses you in grief’s journey (The Guardian)
