Monster (12A)

Parent and Baby Screening

Two young boys covered in mud stand on train tracks in a rural setting, looking towards the camera.

When her young son begins to act strange, a single mother demands answers from his school, in Hirokazu Kore-eda's mysterious drama. 

Winning best screenplay at Cannes, the latest drama by Hirokazu Kore-eda (Broker, Shoplifters) is a mysterious foray into cause and effect, and the role of truth and innocence.

When her young son Minato starts to behave strangely, single mother Saori knows that there is something wrong. Discovering that one of his teachers might be responsible, she storms into the school demanding answers. But as the story unfolds through the eyes of mother, teacher and child, shocking truths begin to emerge. 

A timely tale of family, false impressions, and, ultimately, hope, Kore-eda’s typically sensitive work features powerful performances by Ando Sakura, Tanaka Yuko and Nagayama Eita, and a sublime score from the Oscar-winning composer Ryuichi Sakamoto.
