Despite the book’s massive popularity and acclaim, A Monster Calls went mostly unnoticed by audiences when it hit the big screen in 2016, grossing a little more than $47 million worldwide. But critics praised the film, bringing it to a Certified Fresh rating of 86 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. Glenn Kenny of RogerEbert.com called it “visually breathtaking” and wrote that its “wisdom and overarching compassion” were hard to shake.

The films’ cast was also commended for their work, with Peter Travers of Rolling Stone praising Jones for a “dazzling, deeply-felt performance as a cancer-stricken mother unable to help her 12-year-old son,” adding that MacDougall was “outstanding.”

A Monster Calls is a particularly good opportunity for audiences used to seeing Neeson as an action star play a monstrous tree. And t’s no surprise the iconic actor was able to give a deeply emotional performance – he admitted he “sobbed” watching the movie.

Though the film might sound like it’s a tear-jerker due its heavy subject matter, it’s an uplifting illustration of how someone can cope with so much pain by using their imagination. If you’re looking for a good cry and a story about finding hope in dark times, A Monster Calls might be just right for your next Netflix pick.
