Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, a man has established a tenuous domestic order with his wife and son, but this will soon be put to test when a desperate young family arrives seeking refuge.
Trey Edward Shults
In the Middle Ages, a young servant fleeing from his master takes refuge at a convent full of emotionally unstable nuns. Introduced as a deaf mute man, he must fight to hold his cover as the nuns try to resist temptation.
"Love is timeless. Love knows no bounds." A Ghost Story gives new meaning to those phrases and really makes them count.
I had high expectations for the film and it managed to surpass them. It went beyond what I initially assumed would be its premise. It's a beautiful, poetic tale of love and the way that the connections we make throughout our lives can shape us. It's really mostly a silent film but the mesmerizing cinematography and the delicate, ethereal directing really help make this gem some sort of masterpiece. Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck aren't given a lot of dialogue but they're perfect in these roles. They're both two incredibly talented actors who are at their best playing internal characters and here they completely inhabit the meditative nature of the roles. If anything this deserves even greater attention than it has gotten.
