Synopsis: A coming of age movie unlike any other, Closet Monster tells the story of Oscar (Connor Jessup, recently named one of the 25 new faces of Independent film), a teenage boy whose dual childhood traumas—the virulent breakup of his parents, and his witness to an act of graphic violence—lead him to grow up with a vibrant, off-kilter, and often strange fantasy life (including his close confidant, a talking hamster voiced by the incomparable Isabella Rossellini). Veering from sweet to disturbing, banal to explosive, this dark and comedic film takes us on a coming out journey filled with intimately familiar emotions, while remaining uniquely original.
