Right before I walked into the movie theater to go see A Monster Calls, I get an alert on my phone telling me Jeremy Jahns reviewed that very movie. I had been waiting six months for his take – ever since I saw the richly executed, highly moving trailer for what looked to be this heart-wrenching thrill ride – and it starts off with him saying, “Well, nobody saw this movie…”I hadn’t heard its name mentioned in regards to the top spot on the charts, only that the civil rights-centered true story of Hidden Figures was in the lead and that Underworld (rightfully) wasn’t.
