It only took the second new movie of 2017 to make me ball. A Monster Calls was a phenomenal movie because of the brilliant performance of Lewis MacDougall. It would be shame if he didn’t win any awards for this role, which was raw, powerful, and heart breaking. I didn’t know what to expect here, but this little boy is the heart and soul of this film. No matter often we see this story played out in real life, A Monster Calls shows all of us that there are ways to cope with sickness and that we all have the ability to overcome the worse.
