A Monster Calls (2016) Reviews
As a fan of J.A. Bayona’s previous work “The Impossible”, I had fairly high expectations for this and to say that I am astonished would be an understatement. “A Monster Calls” is based on the book that Patrick Ness published in 2011. After this breathtaking adventure I assure you, You will be inclined to read the book. As this is an adventure that builds on your emotions and thrives on your imagination. Conner is a young man that is trying to cope with the fact that his mother who is diagnosed with a terminal illness isn’t long for this world. But as his mind races with fears and his imagination takes hold, he creates a creature that would give adults nightmares, But as he realizes the creature is friendly, He grows close to the “monster”.
This is one of those movies that must be seen in theaters, mainly because it’s two hours of escape from reality, where you can turn the page back, to a time where your imagination used to run wild. A time when, your biggest responsibilities were picking up your socks. In other words, a time when you were really free.
Don’t miss to watch this movie. . .!!!
