Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (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. Directed by David Lowery (AIN’T THEM BODIES SAINTS and last year’s PETE’S DRAGON, which also plays on Jul 29).
“A GHOST STORY has the structure and rhythm of a musical suite, with Lowry working variations on the same themes, the same characters, and the same location. The result can be lyrical and poetic, or more naturalistic and minimalist. In both cases, A GHOST STORY is absolutely mesmerizing, with an anything-goes quality that’s endlessly fascinating.” —Noel Murray, The Playlist
