'A Monster Calls' preview screening

Carclew is hosting a special preview screening of A MONSTER CALLS and is offering FREE double passes. 

Based on the award-winning novel by Patrick Ness, visionary director J. A. Bayona brings the fantastic to life in A MONSTER CALLS. With breathtaking special effects, this beautifully crafted film tells a story of courage, loss and hope, blending fantasy and reality in a bold and innovative way.

Conor (Lewis MacDougall) is dealing with far more than other boys his age. His mother (Felicity Jones) is ill, he has little in common with his imperious grandmother (Sigourney Weaver), and he is the target of bullies at school.

Then one night, Conor summons an unlikely ally: a 40-foot-high colossus of a monster who bursts forth from the ancient yew tree in the graveyard behind his house. Guiding Conor through a dark and magical world, the monster brings stories to life. But his tales of noble princes and evil queens reveal unexpected twists; the heroes behave badly; the villains turn out to be innocent; the bad aren’t punished and the good aren’t saved. Why, Conor wonders, is the world so complicated and so unfair?

A MONSTER CALLS will be in cinemas 27 July.
