Director David Lowery (Pete's Dragon) returns to indie film with his unforgettable film about love, grief, and what we leave behind. Reuniting his Ain't Them Bodies Saints co-stars, Academy Award® winner Casey Affleck (Manchester By the Sea) and Rooney Mara (Carol, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo), Lowery creates a haunted story unlike any you've seen, one conceived in secret and fueled by the pure spirit of creative expression. The sparseness of Lowery's narrative elevates the simple story of a man who once was (Affleck), taken from the Earth before his time. He returns home after his death, as a ghost shrouded in a white sheet to haunt his grieving lover (Mara), only to see what was once his home become something completely foreign as time passes. Going back to his filmmaking roots, Lowery makes use of his masterful skills as a storyteller, visual artist, and craftsman in this avant-garde story of loneliness and finding one's place. A Ghost Story is a constant reminder of your history in every step you take and every place you call home.
