1A Monster Calls

This month opens with a fantasy film—a seemingly perfect transition coming out of the Halloween vibe. But A Monster Calls is nothing horrifying, but rather, deeply touching. This film adaptation of a novel by Patrick Ness tells the story of Conor, an only child to a single mother who is suffering cancer.

Adding insult to injury, Conor is also battling against anger, indifference, and bullying by the people he is surrounded with. At a point in the story, he repeatedly encounters a monster in his dreams. If this monster will turn out to be a gift or a nightmare is something we would have to see in the movie!

In 2004, CBS released a report issuing an investigation of the former President George W. Bush. This report caused the producer and anchor their careers and took over their personal lives. Truth is a newsroom drama that takes us behind the scenes of what really happened during this tumultuous time. If you liked series like The Newsroom, this film is intriguing and definitely worth watching.
