Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara reunite with their 'Ain’t Them Bodies Saints' director David Lowery for this haunting and whimsical tale.
Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Oscar-winner Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Oscar-nominee 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.
An unforgettable meditation on love and grief, 'A Ghost Story' remains playful while occasionally veering towards the profound, showing how life no matter how difficult, must go on for the living.
