A Ghost Story
9:00pm - Tuesday, Aug 15, 2017
With A GHOST STORY, acclaimed writer-director David Lowery (AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS, PETE'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.
"This ingenious and affecting film is strange and intense..." (The New York Times)
"It’s a mundane sort of fable, one that ties beautifully with so many fears of the modern world." (The Atlantic)
"A GHOST STORY is the most unusual and loneliest phantasm saga ever to give you the shivers." (Toronto Star)
