A Monster Calls | The Old Vic
Conor finds a most unlikely ally when a monster appears at his bedroom window one night. In keeping with the book, the film has several fantastical elements.
There are scenes of moderate threat as a huge tree comes to life and appears to directly threaten the main character, a child. There are also repeated images, in dream sequences, of a collapsing building and crumbling ground which leaves the boy's mother clinging to a ledge above a chasm.
Though the scenes are intense, in the context of the film which is looking at difficult ideas from a child character's point of view, the BBFC Compliance Officer s who viewed the film suggested these ideas could be contained at 12A, where moderately intense scenes are acceptable.
