★★★★★ "Extraordinary. One of the year's most original and best films." - Little White Lies


Indie director David Lowery (Aint Them Bodies Saints) left the small-scale roots to direct Pete’s Dragon for Disney, a film that still managed to retain the feel of a more intimate indie film. Here he returns to his roots with this tale of a woman (Rooney Mara) overcome with grief when her partner, played by Oscar winner Casey Affleck, dies in a car crash. Somehow his spirit lives on, underneath a white sheet with eyeholes cut out of it. 

A remarkable film that eschews tradition with some great structural innovations and wonderful cinematography that make the most of the 4:3 aspect ratio.
