The Cinema Series at Augusta University: "A Ghost Story"

A GHOST STORY
2017, Rated R
(92 minutes)

Screenwriter/Producer Toby Halbrooks will be present for a Q&A session led by Matthew Buzzell, Assistant Professor of Communication.

Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Academy Award-winner Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Academy Award-nominee 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. 

“…achingly intimate, and somehow optimistic. A meditation on loss but also on legacy — on our enduring need to endure.”

– Bob Mondello, NPR

This screening is presented by the Cinema Series at Augusta University and the Department of Communications.

Free admission to The Cinema Series for Augusta University and East Georgia State College students, faculty, staff, and the general public is made possible by the Office of Student Life and Engagement and by the generous support of The Bees Knees and The Hive.

 

This film is rated R for brief language and a disturbing image.
