A Ghost Story

92 mins
7.2 / 10 (1924)


A recently deceased man returns to his suburban home as a white-sheeted ghost to console and reconnect with his bereft wife. But 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.

MUBI's take

With Chantal Akerman among his key influences, up-and-comer David Lowery directs Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck in this poignant tale of sundered love. Enriched by a dreamlike score and shot in a 1:33 aspect ratio, A Ghost Story is one of the simplest yet most timeless dramas from recent times.
