Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “a boy seeks the help of a tree monster (huge tree that has been standing for thousands of years) to cope with his single mother’s (Felicity Jones) terminal illness

Based on the award-winning children’s fantasy novel by Patrick Ness (the Chaos Walking trilogy), this visually spectacular film follows 12-year-old Conor’s attempts to deal with his mother’s illness and the bullying of his classmates by escaping into a fantastical world of monsters and fairy tales that explore courage, loss and faith. Liam Neeson stars in performance-capture and voiceover as the nocturnally visiting monster of the title. ”
