About the film:

Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife, 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.

“A meditation on loss but also on legacy – on our enduring need to endure.”

Bob Mondello for NPR

About the filmmaker:

David Lowery is a visionary filmmaker whose works as a writer and director include Ain’t Them Bodies Saints (2013), Pete’s Dragon (2016), Old Man and the Gun (2017), and A Ghost Story (2017). Pandemic delays allowed Lowery the opportunity to perfect his latest, The Green Knight (2021), a fresh and bold spin on a classic tale from the knights of the round table.
