Reviews:
"[The] actors all strike a remarkable balance between playing the surface emotions of a scene and hinting at what lies beneath. The craft of the film is undeniable." -- Grade: B - 12/19/2016 A.V. Club


3 stars out of 4 -- "There are things about this film that are hard to shake; the movie’s ultimate wisdom and overarching compassion make it very likely that you won’t want to shake them, after all." - 12/22/2016 RogerEbert.com


"The formidable creature looming over A MONSTER CALLS is one of the more unnerving, impressive special-effects creations of the year." - 12/22/2016 New York Times


"From its elegant title to its unexpectedly edgy tone, A MONSTER CALLS makes its own way. There is magic, real magic here..." - 12/22/2016 Los Angeles Times


3.5 stars out of 4 -- "It’s a simple fable, gracefully adapted by Patrick Ness from his own novel, but laced with troubling psychological complexity manifested in the form of this outwardly monstrous tree....There's magic in it." - 12/21/2016 Rolling Stone


"A MONSTER CALLS is a portrait of coping that’s both fascinating and heartbreaking." - 01/05/2017 Boston Globe


4 stars out of 5 -- "[T]here is an acutely poignant, intensely personal core to the film, which Bayona handles sensitively; for as well as being a heart-squeezing portrayal of a fiercely imaginative boy dealing with his young mother’s mortality, it also explores the power of storytelling." - 01/01/2017 Empire


4 stars out of 5 -- "A piercing sadness runs through this impressive adaptation, by Patrick Ness, of his acclaimed young adult novel." - 01/08/2017 The Guardian
