A Ghost Story
A dead man (Casey Affleck) returns home to haunt his wife (Rooney Mara), manifesting as a ghost wearing a sheet with eyeholes over his head.

At the same time, he tries to communicate with a ghost living in the house next door. Written and directed by David Lowery (Pete's Dragon, Ain't Them Bodies Saints). ~ Jack Rodgers, Rovi

    This is not a horror movie. It is not even scary, but that is not the intent of this movie. This film paints a unique story about the passage of time. The film is an independent studio film, produced by A24 and distributed by Lionsgate. Being an independent film the story moves at a much slower pace and has longer scenes without the rapid camera angle changes found in most big studio films today. I really enjoyed this movie for the story it tells, and I am glad to have added this film to my collection.

    Wasn’t sure at first if I liked or disliked this film, as it takes a very specific and languid approach that was sometimes trying as a viewer. However, for a film about the nature of time and love and loss, it’s part of the point. In the end, the style and direction was appreciated in a unique and wholly different style of filmmaking.

    This is a powerful and haunting movie that will leave you destroyed. But it's one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen and Casey Affleck gives one of his best performances of all time and he's under a sheet almost the entire film. This isn't a horror movie at all. But it's one I think should be seen.

    This movie was so highly praised and came highly recommended, so I purchased it. I found the film and plot boring and unimaginative. Sorry, but it had no appeal whatsoever to this moviegoer. And really?? A ghost??? I have seen better Halloween ghosts!!!

    A Ghost Story is not for everyone. It is a sad, heartbreaking and haunting exploration of love and time. Those who watch this, it will stick with you long after it’s over. Time and love are infinite. I hope everyone gives this film a chance.

    Unbelievably boring. Terrible directorial and/or writing decision for main character to exist under a sheet as we cannot see him emote st least. Absolutely ridiculous and a waste of time.

    I had heard this movie was good and after seeing the marketing for the film I wanted to watch it. This movie is beyond fantastic. slightly predictable but definitely lives up to its name. Blu-Ray is fantastic.
