We do what we do to endure. We build our legacy piece by piece and maybe a few people remember you after you’re gone. The new trailer for A Ghost Story shows that sometimes you have to give up the ghost to leave a spiritual trail. Even if your story is written in chalk on a city sidewalk.
A Ghost Story stars Casey Affleck as a man watching over the legacy of his lover Rooney Mara. The romantic take on love after death is reminiscent of the Academy Award-winning supernatural romance Ghost, which starred Demi Moore and the late Patrick Swayze.
“It’s all about time,” promises the official synopsis. Will Oldham, Sonia Acevedo, Rob Zabrecky, and Liz Franke star in this story of a ‘ghost and the house he haunts’.
A Ghost Story was directed by David Lowery (Pete’s Dragon). The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in January, where it was picked up by A24, who produced The Witch, The Blackcoat’s Daughter, Green Room and Ex Machina. Oh, and released Moonlight.
A Ghost Story arrives in the US in July. No UK release date has thus far been announced.
