“Lowery’s film offers an alternative view of the supernatural […] While Lowery’s actual method of delivery may not be scary, it’s sure to haunt those who open themselves up to the experience.”
— Variety

Competition Entry
Irish Premiere

With A Ghost Story, acclaimed director David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Pete’s Dragon) returns with a singular exploration of legacy, loss, and the essential human longing for meaning and connection. Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Academy Award®-winner Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Academy Award®-nominee Rooney Mara), only to find that, in his spectral state, he has become unstuck in time, forced to watch passively as the life he knew and the woman he loves slowly slip away. Increasingly unmoored, the ghost embarks on a cosmic journey through memory and history, confronting life’s ineffable questions and the enormity of existence. An unforgettable meditation on love and grief, 
A Ghost Story emerges ecstatic and surreal – a wholly unique experience that lingers long after the credits roll.
