We like it because:

“We do what we can to endure”

Casey Affleck follows up his Best Actor Oscar win this year with an extraordinary performance in this unique and moving existential fantasy drama that will surely haunt next season’s awards ceremonies.

Affleck stars alongside Rooney Mara, twice Oscar nominated for her roles in The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and Carol. There is a wonderful poignancy between the pair, who, torn apart by grief, must come to terms with the implications of their mortality. The supporting cast includes an inspired appearance by acclaimed musician Will Oldham.

Writer and director David Lowery, who provides a revealing audio commentary on the H.E release, displaying the visual panache akin to Terrence Malick and Darren Aronofsky, has produced a bold, singular examination of life and loss. This critically adored film is enigmatic, hypnotic and beautifully realised, and gives two of Hollywood’s most exciting A-list actors the chance to deliver arguably the best performances of their careers yet.

Unforgettable and ambitious, like modern art house classics Personal Shopper and Jim Jarmusch's Paterson, A Ghost Story is a film that delves deep into the human psyche to explore what it means to exist, and lingers long in the memory, rewarding repeat viewings.
