Roman Polanski weaves an amazing tale of intrigue when Ewan McGregor agrees to become a ghost writer for Adam Lang (Brosnan) the former Prime Minister of England. McGregor is actually replacing the previous ghost writer who washed up dead on a shore near the Lang residence. As he researches and rewrites the original draft a back story begins to emerge. McGregor starts to develop theories why the original ghost was killed, he is also convinced he may be next. Roman Polanski stated in the extras that “he likes to make movies for adults” and this is very well done. The supporting cast is top notch and this movie is well worth a watch.
