Description

    It Takes Times

    With A Ghost Story, acclaimed 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. 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-a wholly-unique experience that lingers long after the credits roll.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surreal ghost story... Casey Affleck ("The Town") and Rooney Mara ("Carol", "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo") star in this off-beat, atmospheric and highly original, if surreal, horror fantasy "A Ghost Story". Inventive, forensically told and imaginatively filmed, it works on a number of levels. Perhaps the characters are not as developed as they might have been, yet atmospherically "A Ghost Story" brings the requisite weirdness to the screen. Intriguing...

Rated 3 out of 5 by from A fantastic film but there's one big letdown... This film is a masterpiece, however it's disgraceful that it's unavailable on blu ray, such a gorgeous film is well deserving of a blu ray release.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Be patient to watch this film Great acting. Keeps you thinking long after the movie ends. But you need to be patient. It doesn't move quickly but is well worth the time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I enjoyed it Quiet and a bit moody. I'm not sure it is for everyone but it gets you thinking.
