Director David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Pete’s Dragon) returns with a singular exploration of legacy, loss, and the essential human longing for meaning and connection in his latest movie A Ghost Story.
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. An unforgettable meditation on love and grief, A Ghost Story emerges ecstatic and surreal and a wholly unique experience that lingers long after the credits roll.
Selected for the Sundance Film Festival critics across the world have praised the film.
Indiwire said David Lowery channels the absurdity of this setup into an extraordinary mood piece that amounts of his best movie yet and Brian Tallerico from acclaimed movie website rogerebert.com described the movie as a stunning experiment in film making.
The Hollywood Reporter simply called it hypnotic and Vanity Fair said Lowery’s film transcended experiment and became an almost new method of cinematic thought.
