Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Rooney Mara), only to find that his spectral state has rendered him timeless, forcing him to watch passively as the life he knew and the woman he loves slowly slip away. Increasingly unmoored, the ghost embarks on a journey through memory and history, confronting life’s ineffable questions and the enormity of existence. A Ghost Story is an audacious meditation on grief that will stay with you long after the final credits roll.
“Even covered in a sheet, Affleck exudes heartache in David Lowery’s gorgeously sad tale of love and loss.” Wendy Ide, The Guardian
