Queensland Premiere. 

From acclaimed director Kore-eda Hirokazu (Shoplifters, Broker) is the complex and intimate story of friendship and the complexities of family. Awarded Best Screenplay at Cannes 2023. 

When Minato starts to behave strangely, his mother feels there is something wrong. Discovering that a teacher may be responsible, she storms into the school demanding to know what is going on. But as the story unfolds through the eyes of the mother, teacher and the child, the truth gradually emerges. Balancing an intimacy of family drama with a profoundly moral tale, Monster has been highly regarded by critics and audiences since premiering at Cannes.
