Monster film

Monster is the latest film from acclaimed Japanese director Hirokazu Kore-eda (Broker, Shoplifters), winning Best Screenplay and Queer Palm awards at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and features music by Oscar-winning composer Ryuichi Sakamoto (The Revenant, The Last Emperor).

When her young son Minato (Soya Kurokawa) starts to behave strangely, his mother Saori (Sakura Ando, Shoplifters) feels that there is something wrong. Discovering that his teacher Hori (Eita Nagayama) is responsible, she storms into the school demanding to know what’s going on. But as the story unfolds through the eyes of mother, teacher and child, the truth is more complex than expected.

Winner of the Queer Palm and Best Screenplay awards at Cannes Film Festival

By the Way Berkshires is a digital magazine exploring creative life and community — art and performance, food and the outdoors — and I’m writing it for you, with local voices, because I’ve gotten to know this rich part of the world as a writer and journalist, and I want to share it with you.

If you’d like to see the website grow, you can join me for a few dollars a month, enough for a cup of coffee and a cider doughnut. Members get access to extra stories and multimedia, itineraries a bookmark tool. Let me know what you're looking for, and we’ll explore together.
