A Ghost Story

Showed at Images 8/18/2017–8/24/2017

Starring: Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara

Director David Lowery reunites with the stars of Ain't Them Bodies Saints Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara to make this beautiful meditation on life and death.

Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife, 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.

“Lowery is committing to nothing less than the scope of eternity, but by doing so, he does more to explore supernatural sadness than any thriller I can think of. He’s crafted something strange and wonderful, with a romantic metaphysics all its own.”
