A GHOST STORY

A film by David Lowery

Cast: Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara, McColm Cephas Jr.

This tale of a man who dies young and comeback as a ghost to  linger around the property where he and his wife once lived is bound to be one of the most original film of the year. I did even see the trailer and did not want to know anything about this film I said to myself I am going to see this film, and you will need to see this film a second time just in case you missed something.

The film is so charming here and has purity and theme is so simple not even too much dialog just watch and take it all in. You see this couple talking to each other at their house . everything is fine but the film goes back and forth it in time of some sort. The the inevitable happens C gets in an accident right in the front of his house and dies. M Is devastated but C wakes up in the morgue and wonders as a ghost. Until he find a path way that opens for him to get in and move on to the next life. But instead goes home and follows M. But the film  is a bit confusing jumping from one time line to another. It looks like C is trying to get answers that we all want to know but he does seems to get them either . The film is like that you are going to love it or hate it there is not in between.
