Entertainment Reviews:

A.V. Club - 07/06/2017
"[G]et on the wavelength of this mesmerizing, singularly unusual genre experiment and the undead being at its center stops looking so silly." -- Grade: A-
RogerEbert.com - 07/06/2017
4 stars out of 4 -- "The film is a ghost story, in the sense that there’s a ghost in it, but it’s also many other things: a love story, a science fiction-inflected story about time travel and time loops, and a story about loneliness and denial..."
Los Angeles Times - 07/06/2017
"Opening in domestic contentment, moving through personal anguish and ending with a cosmic lament, it’s a simple, wrenching story of love and loss that pries open a window onto eternity."
Boston Globe - 07/13/2017
"A GHOST STORY keeps expanding metaphysically even as it pares away details; it becomes simpler, more elemental, and more emotionally transparent as it goes."
New York Times - 07/05/2017
"[An] ingenious and affecting new film....Just when you think you’ve cracked the film’s circumscribed logic, it opens up and goes wild in ways at once too wondrous and too preposterous to spoil."
Variety - 01/22/2017
"While Lowery’s actual method of delivery may not be scary, it’s sure to haunt those who open themselves up to the experience."
Chicago Sun-Times - 07/12/2017
"[D]isturbingly beautiful and spiritually challenging..."
The Atlantic - 07/06/2017
"Lowery’s greatest success is in keeping this intentionally spare story from feeling like a gimmick."
Washington Post - 07/13/2017
"By the standards of the moody art-house meditation on love, loss, memory, forgetting, attachment, letting go and the nature of eternity, it’s pretty darn great."
Rolling Stone - 07/05/2017
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "This is a poetic and profound experiment you do not want to miss."
Hollywood Reporter - 01/22/2017
"The film's sense of time and space -- past, present and future -- grows steadily more elastic, porous, infinite."
Empire - 08/01/2017
3 stars out of 5 -- "A GHOST STORY is both deeply intimate and vast in scope, bridging years, then centuries, before looping back on itself."
The Guardian - 08/13/2017
"Pensive, precise and with an elegant, looping structure, this is a first-rate piece of direction from Lowery, who also wrote the screenplay."
USA Today - 12/26/2017
"The wildly nonlinear tale of a phantom stuck to the home he adored is also a poignant examination of life and death, everlasting love and how the world moves on long after we’re gone."

Product Description:

A dead man (Casey Affleck) returns home to haunt his wife (Rooney Mara), manifesting as a ghost wearing a sheet with eyeholes over his head. He remains stuck in the house even after she moves out, and observes different sets of occupants over the course of several decades. At the same time, he tries to communicate with a ghost living in the house next door. Written and directed by David Lowery (PETE'S DRAGON, AIN'T THEM BODIES SAINTS).
