A Monster Calls by Minnesotan Exec Dir Bill Pohlad of River Road Entertainment

Minnesota has always played an important role in the film world. Minnesotan Bill Pohlad of River Road Entertainment is the Executive Director of soon to be released  A Monster Calls.

SYNOPSIS: A Monster Calls is a visually spectacular and unabashedly emotional drama from director J.A. Bayona. 12-year-old Conor (Lewis MacDougall) is dealing with far more than other boys his age. His beloved and devoted mother (Felicity Jones) is ill. He has little in common with his imperious grandmother (Sigourney Weaver). His father (Toby Kebbell) has resettled thousands of miles away. But Conor finds a most unlikely ally when the Monster (portrayed by Liam Neeson in performance capture and voiceover) appears at his bedroom window one night. Ancient, wild and relentless, the Monster guides Conor on a journey of courage, faith, and truth that powerfully fuses imagination and reality.

#AMonsterCalls tells the story of a young boy who uses art to cope with his mother’s terminal illness. From the beautiful watercolors and storytelling, to the compelling characters and more, A Monster Calls is an emotionally gripping film.
