The first time I saw the trailer for A Ghost Story I thought it looked like the most ridiculous movie ever. Rooney Mara, pretty and sad, followed around by a ghost in a sheet with eye holes (played by Casey Affleck). But after repeated viewings something clicked. This might be… good? Mara and Affleck, previously coupled in Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, secretly shot the film last summer with mustachioed director David Lowery (not the Cracker/Camper Van Beethoven singer). People seem to love it, though many words are being written on the internet about a “pie scene”. I guess we’ll see. The film co-stars Will Oldham and Kesha of all people.
