West Coast Premiere
A boy seeks the help of a tree monster to cope with his single mom’s terminal illness.
At the center of this visually spectacular drama from director J.A. Bayona (THE IMPOSSIBLE) is 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall).
With a terminally ill mother (Felicity Jones), a less-than-sympathetic grandmother (Sigourney Weaver) and bullying classmates, it seems the world has turned against the boy.
But Conor finds an unlikely ally when an ancient Monster (voiced by Liam Neeson) appears at his bedroom window to guide him on a journey of courage, faith and truth.
