Also opening around Christmas will be not one, but two flicks featuring Liam Neeson. First, there is Martin Scorsese’s latest film, the religious epic Silence, which stars Neeson, as well as Northern Irish veteran of stage and screen Ciaran Hinds. The film is set centuries ago in Japan, and also stars Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver. Neeson will also lend his voice to the fantasy film A Monster Calls, based on a book concept from late Irish author Siobhan Dowd. A Monster Calls tells the story of young Conor O’Malley (Lewis MacDougall), who is mourning the loss of his mother and finds an unlikely healing source in a monstrous, storytelling tree. ♦
