A Monster Calls
I must say that A Monster Calls is very faithful to the novel it’s based on. Reading the book not too long ago and seeing the movie last week, it definitely hits the same story points while capturing the essence and themes of the novel – all very well cinematically. My only gripe is the very last scene which is the most obvious departure from the book. It just takes away from the previous scene which felt like more of the true ending for this story. The follow-up was unnecessary and took away from the magnitude of emotion we had just experienced.
