“When I was little we used to move all the time. I would write these notes, and I would fold them really small and I would hide them.” “What did they say?” “They were just things I wanted to remember so if I ever wanted to go back, there would be a piece of me waiting.” ‘A Ghost Story’ story line follows a man, C (Casey Affleck) who dies after a head-on car accident in front of his house, leaving behind his wife M (Rooney Mara). After examining his corpse at the hospital, she leaves the room, and covered by the white cloth over his body, his ghost rises up and returns home to observe the grieving widow he left behind.
“What is it you like about this house so much?” “History.” The ghost, donning a white sheet with two holes for eyes, watches her closely, trying to reconnect with his loved ones as time goes by.
“A writer writes a novel a song writer writes a song we do what we can to endure.” The film takes place almost entirely in a single house in Texas with a ghost wearing the bed sheet after Affleck’s character dies in a car accident.
“We build our legacy piece by piece and maybe the whole world will remember you or maybe just a couple of people but you do what you can to make sure you’re still around after you’re gone. Written and directed by David Lowery with a cast that also includes Will Oldham, Sonia Acevedo, Carlos Bermudez Rob Zabrecky, and Liz Franke ‘A Ghost Story,’ which premiered in January at the Sundance Film Festival, receiving positive reviews from critics has a theater release date of July 7th, 2017.
