Monster is a timely tale of family, false impressions, and hope from director Hirokazu Kore-eda (Broker, Shoplifters).

Single mother Saori knows that there is something wrong when her young son Minato starts to behave strangely.

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.

Mysterious and deeply moving, Monster is a breathtaking piece of cinema featuring a sublime score from Oscar®-winning composer Ryuichi Sakamoto.
