The Ghost Writer ()

directed by
featuring Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Kim Cattrall, Olivia Williams, Tom Wilkinson

A ghostwriter stumbles onto a secret that places his life in danger as he takes down the life story of a former U.K. prime minister in this Roman Polanski-helmed adaptation of the Robert Harris novel. Convinced by his agent that he's been granted a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, talented British screenwriter "The Ghost" (Ewan McGregor) agrees to aid British prime minister Adam Lang (Pierce Brosnan) in completing his memoirs after the leader's former aide dies under mysterious circumstances. Almost immediately after The Ghost arrives at a remote mansion in the U.S. to begin working with the prime minister, Lang is accused of committing a war crime by a former British cabinet minister. Amidst a deluge of protestors and reporters, The Ghost delves into the unfinished manuscript and comes to the terrifying conclusion that his predecessor died because he discovered a link between Prime Minister Lang and the CIA. The more information The Ghost uncovers, the more convinced he becomes that his life could be in danger as well. Jason Buchanan, Rovi Hide synopsis

Reviews of The Ghost Writer

Overall customer rating: 5.000
BobCumbow

One of the Best of 2010

by BobCumbow on Dec 30, 2010

One of the best films of 2010, it startles by its sheer competence as well as its willingness to engage, without irony, the old-style conspiracy thriller form, inventing it anew. Gripping and superbly acted (Olivia Williams is fabulous), and boasting a terrific score by the brilliant Alexandre Desplat. In an under-handed way, the film may be Polanski's love-letter to the America that rejected him ... but it is also much more than that, both troubling and cinematically exhilarating.
