Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Academy Award-winner Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Academy Award-nominee Rooney Mara), only to find that in his spectral state he has become unstuck in time, forced to watch passively as the life he knew and the woman he loves slowly slip away. Increasingly unmoored, the ghost embarks on a cosmic journey through memory and history, confronting life’s ineffable questions and the enormity of existence.
Insider’s tip: “While at times bleak, A Ghost Story isn’t devoid of hope. More essentially, the best film so far this year is a thought-provoking, singularly special masterpiece about love, mortality and how our heart keeps beating even after it stops” (Brian Truitt, USA Today). A. O. Scott, The New York Times, adds: “A Ghost Story is suspenseful, dourly funny and at times piercingly emotional.” Mat Zoller Seitz, RogerEbert.com: “I rarely see a movie so original that I want to tell people to just see it without reading any reviews beforehand, including my own. David Lowery’s A Ghost Story is one of those movies.” Peter Travers, Rolling Stone: “This is a poetic and profound experiment you do not want to miss.”
