Watched The Ghost Writer

The extraordinary director/writer Roman Polanski presents a tense and intriguing drama about a little-heard-of British ghostwriter(Ewan McGregor), who accepts a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity…ghostwriting the compelling memoirs of the British Prime Minister Adam Lang(Pierce Brosnan)as he is falling from grace. The Ghost begins working on the unfinished manuscript and realizes that his predecessor mysteriously died discovering a link between Lang and the CIA. But damning the Prime Minister is accusations of committing a war crime by a former cabinet minister. This thriller runs a little over two hours, but it is the last ten minutes most brilliant. If watching on DVD you will at least once hit rewind to review the startling finale. The atmosphere and scenery are perfect for a mystery. The supporting cast is star-studded featuring: Olivia Williams, Kim Cattrall, Timothy Hutton, Tom Wilkinson and smaller roles for Jim Belushi and the great character actor Eli Wallach. Polanski definitely has a winner in THE GHOST WRITER.
