Movie Review: The Ghost Writer

Summit Entertainment and Ayala Malls Cinema brings The Ghost Writer to Greenbelt 3 and Glorietta 4 exclusively beginning August 4. It is a political thriller film adapted from the 2007 novel of Robert Harris entitled The Ghost, directed by Roman Polanski and starring Ewan McGregor, Olivia Williams, Kim Cattrall, and Pierce Brosnan.

The Ghost Writer follows the quest of a successful non-political ghostwriter played by McGregor who was hired to complete the memoirs of the former British Prime Minister Adam Lang (Brosnan) who was allegedly connected to a war crime. With the promise of an opportunity of a lifetime, the “ghost” accepts the offer and discovers deeper secrets connected to the Lang and his family and team.

From The Box, Informant and Crazy Hearts that Ayala Mall exclusively shown in their cinema The Ghost Writer became an immediate favorite of mine where despite of some changes from the novel, the real essence of the story remains intact in the film. McGregor, Brosnan and Williams perfectly executed their roles and contribute to the mysterious flow of the story.

I am fan of juxtaposition or coincidence in terms of storyline and visuals, like majority in the scenes of The God Father, the storm or the mood of the weather contributes to the dilemma that all the characters is facing though out the film. Same the last part when papers flew after the ghost left the book launching (sorry for the spoiler) reveals the quest of McGregor to reveal the truth which everyone is waiting. The good thing with the movies like this is that it encourages the movie goers to think between transitions and cuts of the camera making them part of the film to visualize scenes and stories that are not shown in the screen. Yes, I am bias simply because I enjoyed the movie.

The Ghost Writer will be exclusively shown on Glorrieta 4 and Greenbelt 3 beginning August 4, distributed by Ayala Malls Cinema and Summit Entertainment.
