A Ghost Story

***PLEASE NOTE: Our elevator will be out of service for maintenance from October 23 through November 10.  During this time, all patrons wishing to access the 3rd floor will need to use the stairs in the Reading Room.***
 

With A GHOST STORY, acclaimed director David Lowery returns with a singular exploration of legacy, loss, and the essential human longing for meaning and connection.

Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Rooney Mara), only to find that 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.

Increasingly unmoored, the ghost embarks on a cosmic journey through memory and history, confronting life’s ineffable questions and the enormity of existence.

Run time: 92 minutes
