The Ghost Writer - Movie Review

The Ghost Writer (PG-13) 128 min B
Writers of the Storm

Starring Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Kim Cattrall, Olivia Williams, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Hutton, and Eli Wallach

The Ghost Writer is a mature and well-crafted conspiracy thriller about a ghost writer who becomes a pawn in the deadly game of politics.

Ewan McGregor gives the best performance of his career, while Olivia Williams steals every scene she's in. Polanski does a brilliant job of creating a suspenseful atmosphere that's dark, gloomy and full of intrigue; everyone in this film seems like they're missing something or someone.

Kim Cattrall is surprisingly good and my only negatives are that it feels a little long and slow paced at times. Otherwise this is a good film that's worth seeing while it's in theaters.
