A Ghost Of A Chance (Film Thoughts: A Ghost Story)

206506_1018652274931_9732_nI have a friend who I discuss movies with and he asked me “Have you seen ‘A Ghost Story’ yet? ” and I answered that I am not too fond of horror movies. “No, it’s really a horror film, it’s really more a drama,” and now I remember that I have seen its trailer, though I don’t really remember much. and to think I have been ignoring it. I think I may have been on holiday when it came out, that’s why it has been off my radar.

I trust my friend’s taste so I went to see it, and boy I was so glad to follow his advise. This film is creepy, touching, and it will make you think. I remember it has been a couple of days and he and I are still discussing. I first thought that some of the execution are clunky, but as I ponder more, everything makes sense. Casey Affleck’s character (his character) is never named dies in an accident, and his soul wearing a blanket goes back to visit his wife, played by Rooney Mara. But there’s more to that, there are expressions of the souls going back in time, as well as forward. There is a sense of poignancy on how everything wraps up.

Truly, this film has unlikely sweetness that will touch your heart, and I cannot recommend it enough.
