One day, a girl fell through the floor of her house. She had done it in the night and didn't tell anyone until the next morning. The only reason she told anyone was because she received a message from a list of her friends. The message read, "Hey, haven't seen you in days. Did you fall through the floor"?Read allIn this singular exploration of legacy, love, loss, and the enormity of existence, a recently deceased, white-sheeted ghost returns to his suburban home to try to reconnect with his bereft wife.In this singular exploration of legacy, love, loss, and the enormity of existence, a recently deceased, white-sheeted ghost returns to his suburban home to try to reconnect with his bereft wife.

Ghost

My only real criticism of the film was that it could have done a better job making the audience feel more for the ghost character. Additionally, while I liked the score overall, there were a few moments where it felt a little out of place. But other than that, this is a truly original piece of film that shows that in the world of independent filmmaking, sometimes 'less is more.' While I like a good blockbuster as much as anyone, it really--and undeniably--is great to see such an interesting movie that did not need a big budget to make.

A door of light opens before him, but he makes no attempt to approach it, and it closes. He walks home and watches his wife grieve. The seasons change. Through a window, he sees another sheet-covered ghost inside the house next door; the two ghosts wave to one another. One night the wife arrives home with a man, whom she kisses. The ghost makes lights flicker and knocks books from a shelf. Later, as the wife listens to a song by her late husband, she recalls listening to it with him. She eventually decides to move out. Before she leaves, she writes a short note and hides it in a gap in a wall. The ghost picks at the gap but cannot retrieve the note. (Source:www.imdb.com)

Story

With A Ghost Story, acclaimed 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.I rarely see a movie so original that I want to tell people to just see it without reading any reviews beforehand, including my own. David Lowery’s “A Ghost Story” is one of those movies. So I’m urging you in the first paragraph of this review to just see it and save this review for later. If you want more information, read on. There are no spoiler warnings after this because as far as I’m concerned, everything I could say about this film would constitute a spoiler. (Source: www.rogerebert.com)
