Focus Features is releasing a new film called A Monster Calls. It’s a story of a young boy who copes with his mother’s terminal illness by using his imagination to create fantastical creatures, specifically a large tree monster, voiced by Liam Neeson. The movie will open in theaters on January 6th, but Portlanders will have an opportunity to see the movie on January 4 at Pioneer Place with a 7pm start time. Thanks to Focus Features, I’m giving away five prize packs consisting of VIP tickets and some promotional items. Continue reading to find out how to win VIP passes and promotional items for the movie.
A Monster Calls Synopsis
A Monster Calls is a visually spectacular and unabashedly emotional drama from director J.A. Bayona. 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall) is dealing with far more than other boys his age. His beloved and devoted mother (Felicity Jones) is ill. He has little in common with his imperious grandmother (Sigourney Weaver). His father (Toby Kebbell) has resettled thousands of miles away. But Conor finds a most unlikely ally when the Monster (portrayed by Liam Neeson in performance-capture and voiceover) appears at his bedroom window one night. Ancient, wild, and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth that powerfully fuses imagination and reality.
