Selected at Sundance and SXSW, and described by Variety as a film that, “celebrates the power of theatre to move audiences and actors alike”, Ghostlight tells the moving story of a grieving construction worker who joins a local theatre production of Romeo and Juliet. 

Dan Mueller is struggling to cope with the suicide of his son a year earlier. When Dan joins the local community theatre production, he finds a place to move through his grief with his newfound friends. Keeping the role a secret from his wife and daughter causes complications, and soon the on-stage drama starts to mirror his own life.

With superb performances from Keith Kupferer and Dolly De Leon.
