This morning at MFR is getting A24-centric this morning, as we now have the trailer for A Ghost Story. It says Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck, who are reuniting again with Ain’t Them Bodies Saints director David Lowery. It’s not what you think it is…
Here’s the trailer:
In this singular exploration of legacy, love, loss, and the enormity of existence, a recently deceased, white-sheeted ghost returns to his suburban home to try and reconnect with his bereft wife.
I certainly wasn’t expecting this sort of movie when I clicked on the trailer. You see the A24 logo, A Ghost Story for the title, you think one thing and get another. But what we get instead of some haunted house tale looks to be an entirely new, cool, fascinating story about the endlessness of time? Whatever it is, I have been sold. This looks like a heavy tale.
A Ghost Story will hit theaters July 7.
