A Ghost Story (Afternoon Movie)

With A Ghost Story, acclaimed director David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies SaintsPete’s Dragon) returns with a singular exploration of legacy, loss, and the essential human longing for meaning and connection.

Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Academy Award-winner Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Academy Award-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 emerges ecstatic and surreal—a wholly-unique experience that lingers long after the credits roll.

"A film that I can guarantee you people will revisit and discuss for years to come. It's daring, strange, and unforgettable."

Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

"Opening in domestic contentment, moving through personal anguish and ending with a cosmic lament, it's a simple, wrenching story of love and loss that pries open a window onto eternity."

Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

"Lowery pushes the tropes of the haunted house film past the breaking point, creating something that is entirely original - and oddly, if not profoundly unsettling."

Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post
