The Ghost Writer (2010) PG-13
Former British Prime Minister Adam Lang (read Tony Blair) is living off the coast of New England and planning to write his memoir with the help of a ghost writer. When the body of his first ghost writer washes up on the shore, a new ghost is hired. The new ghost, a brash writer of pop star bios (played by Ewan McGregor), starts to become suspicious of his predecessor’s death and of curious ties that Lang seems to have to another type of ghost, American spies.
This movie is set on a gray, stormy New England coast and leaves the ghost writer and the viewer with the increasing sense that no one can be trusted. Robert Harris, who wrote the novel (titled The Ghost) on which this movie is based, co-authored the screenplay with director Roman Polanski.
