When news crew sent to investigate the Monster disappears, a guileless young woman (Sarah Polley) dispatched to follow up on the story befriends the Monster and becomes his only hope in ending his life of misery.

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The script kicks in, and Mr. Hartley's distended pace and foot-dragging rhythms follow.
Rotten: Much as I value independence in art, it's possible for a filmmaker to crawl so far onto his own wavelength that he loses touch with everything else.
Rotten: Plodding, peevish and gimmicky.
Rotten: Flaccid drama and exasperatingly slow journey.
Tired of the usual spew? This is a total fantasy-based, comedic, romantic and unpredictable tale with outstanding acting and chemistry between the two leads. As a movie director, it’s one of my favorites to watch after a long day on set and I often reference it.
