A GHOST STORY
A Film by David Lowery
Starring Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck
Release Date: 7 July, 2017
A24 has released the first poster and trailer for writer-director David Lowery’s upcoming fantasy drama A Ghost Story.
The film stars recent Academy Award-winner Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara (who reunite with Lowery following Ain’t Them Bodies Saints) alongside Will Oldham, Sonia Acevedo, Rob Zabrecky and Liz Franke.
The film is described as a singular exploration of legacy, loss, and the essential human longing for meaning and connection.
Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (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.
A Ghost Story is released in UK cinemas on 7 July, 2017
