Featured Film:

A Ghost Story at the Egyptian and the Lincoln Square

David Lowery’s Sundance hit is proving to be one of the more divisive art house films of the year, with critics finding its unusual mix of time-bending grief and outright silliness either deeply moving or deeply stupid. Casey Affleck plays the eponymous ghost, covered in a white sheet with cut-out eyeholes. He floats along, haunting his home, watching his wife (Rooney Mara) grieve for him, eat a pie and eventually move away, leaving him to his sad eternity. Ryan was underwhelmed by it in his review, and Evan agreed with him on our SIFF podcast, where I attempted to stick up for the film.
