C (Affleck) and M (Mara) are a couple; when C is killed in a car crash, he returns as a ghost to make contact with M. Lowery manages to reanimate the corny old trope of the ghost under a bedsheet, creating a story about grief and a captivating reflection on the enormity of mankind’s existence.

A Ghost Story

7 Aug 20174 stars

Captivating rumination on existence from David Lowery, starring Casey Affleck and Rooney Mara

In Western entertainment, a person hiding under a white sheet in order to appear ghostly was popularised by 19th century theatre. Although it has been used in horror films to great effect it has also become a silly staple of cartoons like Scooby-Doo.
