PG-13 | | Animation, Drama, Fantasy
A boy seeks the help of a tree monster to cope with his single mother's terminal illness.
The benevolent and wise tree-like monster has points in common with Treebeard the Ent from Lord of the Rings.
Conor: How does the story begin?
The Monster: It begins like so many stories. With a boy, too old to be a kid. Too young to be a man. And a nightmare.
Conor is in the same school class as Harry (the bully), who looks three or four years older than him. While it might be explained that Harry has been held back repeatedly, such a statement is never explicitly made. However, children are rarely held back in UK schools. It's more likely that Harry is either tall or this is a special class on a particular subject that includes children from multiple year groups.
