A GHOST STORY || Reuniting Academy Award winner Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara with writer-director David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints), the team delivers something completely different from the modern day Western that was their previous collaboration. This time, they explore the concepts of loss and the afterlife, in particular, what would happen if after you died and were still around to see your loved ones continue their lives. Instead of being a ghostly figure hovering around, Casey Affleck’s character literally becomes a white-sheet covered ghost, left to watch his bereft wife struggle as he tries whatever he can to connect with her. The film looks extremely touching and is such an original concept, I cannot wait to see how it’s executed. The film had its premiere at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival and is scheduled to open up against Spider-Man: Homecoming this summer.
