Our take

With Chantal Akerman among his key influences, up-and-comer David Lowery directs Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck in this poignant tale of sundered love. Enriched by a dreamlike score and shot in a 1:33 aspect ratio, A Ghost Story is one of the simplest yet most timeless dramas from recent times.
