You'd be correct to call Colossal a monster movie. But it's not your standard creature feature; it's a genre-defying indie film that's ultimately a story not just about that 91.44m-tall monster stomping through Seoul, but also about battling our own personal demons, culminating in a fantastic, emotional ending.

Add to that Oscar-winning actress Anne Hathaway, and it sounds like a Hollywood blockbuster. But that isn't what Colossal is at all.
