**** out of ****
(for brief strong language and a disturbing image)
Released: July 7, 2017 NY/LA; expands July 28
Runtime: 92 minutes
Directed by: David Lowery
Starring: Casey Affleck, Rooney Mara
“…an extreme counter to more common, heavily wrought tales of loss. (Director David) Lowery gives room for grief to breathe, to be lived in, rather than driven by contrivances or sentimental clichés,” and “by the time it’s all over, you realize that this ghost’s story has…taken you places you weren’t expecting.”
A Ghost Story is a slow, quiet, cosmic movie that will initially test the average film viewer’s patience, but then becomes accessibly mesmerizing.
