Can’t remember the last time I cried in a movie theater, but man A Monster Calls perfectly sums up my biggest anxieties of growing up: the fear of loss, fear of change, that moment when you feel like you are never entitled to express your frustration that you become violent. The existence of this movie is more than enough for me. It’s not quite subtle, though, but I didn’t mind. Either way, I needed this. So it’s like… Inside Out… and ParaNorman… and Bridge to Terabithia… except it’s better… way better… Did I mention that it’s also incredibly stunning? The acting is great: Lewis MacDougall is one of the most impressive kid actors I’ve seen this year, he amazingly carries this film that it would be a shame if he doesn’t get nominated along with probably Felicity Jones.
Overall, it’s powerful. It also gets a little too devastating. Even with all the pretty colors, it just straight-up acknowledges the pain and complexities of life and humanity. Reality stinks, but life’s a journey. And dealing with it has always been a part of it.
(Saw this movie last month, but again, better late than never.)
Where to start?
I, too, lost my mother to cancer. I was 45, but standing at her bedside as I said goodbye I may as well have been the same age as Connor. There is something amazing about this movie, that it uses a character positioned as a monster, who turns out to be a savior of sorts. A friend, a protector and a voice of calm reason to someone whose life is in turmoil.
This boys life is near turned upside down. School is a hell, the father is absent and the Grandmother is a distant somewhat disconnected person to him. His life lacks any real comfort and he knows no safe harbor but his mother. And he is losing her.
What he needs is to feel safe enough to confront what is facing him. The “Monster” finally shows him how to summon the strength needed to do this. Funny, but in the end the tree is his keeper and friend.
The acting is superb, by all. Liam’s voice work is a defining role for him. One need only hear his voice to picture his figure behind the voice. That is true art.
The real monster in this move? Just as in life, that would be cancer.
I know this monster. I know its’ face. I know its’ name.
