It’s finally here! After what feels like an eternity of waiting, A Monster Calls is being released in cinemas in Australia on July 27!

A Monster Calls is a beautiful story of love and loss and learning to deal with grief, and it’s one that will bring a tear to the eyes of all readers. I’m absolutely sure the film will do the same, and the cinematography looks absolutely amazing. This isn’t a movie to miss.
