Leonardo is a terrible monster. He tries so hard to be scary, but he just…isn’t. Then Leonardo finds Sam, the most scaredy-cat kid in the world. Will Leonardo finally get his chance to scare the tuna salad out of an unsuspecting human? Or will it be the start of an unlikely friendship? Adapted from the beloved children’s books by Mo Willems, this hand-made movie by critically-acclaimed multimedia artists Manual Cinema tells the story of a monster who longs to be scary and the hard decisions he has to make about identity and empathy.

Recommended for ages 5+
