A Ghost Story (2017)

US 92m, Colour
Director: David Lowery; Cast: Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, Will Oldham, Sonia Acevedo, Rob Zabrecky, Liz Franke

A Ghost Story is an extraordinary film that employs a white sheet with eye holes to cover the title character who haunts the home that he and his wife had inhabited. Unlike most films of this genre, Lowery’s story might more accurately be entitled “A Ghost’s Story” – and with that, I am giving away too much of the plot of this surprisingly poignant drama about love, loss and loneliness. Lacking any audible dialogue from the deceased, this is a slowly paced, thoughtful and rewarding film – and one of the best of the year (Klaus Ming November 2017).
