A Ghost Story


Location la: Redstone Theater

Dir. David Lowery. 2017, 92 mins, DCP. With Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara. After tragedy cleaves them apart, a man (Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Mara), only to discovery that not only is he stuck in a spectral state, but that 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. “Suspenseful, dourly funny and at times piercingly emotional. It’s like an old tale by Saki or Henry James read for the first time: hair-raising and clever, a tour de force of sensation and a triumph of craft.”—A.O. Scott, The New York Times.
