A GHOST STORY

Janet's TAKE: #AGhostStory is a tedious exploration of existence, grief and letting go. C-

This Malick-ish film is annoyingly slow-paced with minimal performances and dialog along with the usual landscape beauty shots.  The only saving grace is
the haunting soundtrack.

Synopsis -
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. - A24


Rated R (for brief language and a disturbing image)
Running Time: 87 minutes
