Based on his best-selling novel and adapted for the screen by Robert Harris (Pompeii), The Ghost is released on Blu-ray and DVD from Optimum Releasing on 30th August 2010. Boasting an outstanding cast and winner of the Silver Bear Award at the 2010 Berlin Film Festival this is an electrifying and "refreshingly old-school mystery thriller" (Daily Mirror).
Academy Award Nominee Ewan McGregor (The Men Who Stare at Goats, Angels and Demons) stars alongside Pierce Brosnan (The Thomas Crown Affair, Mamma Mia!), Olivia Williams (The Sixth Sense, An Education), Kim Cattrall (Sex and the City), and an incredible supporting cast including Tom Wilkinson, James Belushi and Timothy Hutton.
Polanski's critically acclaimed political thriller tracks the tale of a British Ghost writer (McGregor) who is commissioned to re-write the memoirs of former British Prime Minister, Adam Lang (Brosnan), after his predecessor mysteriously dies. The closely guarded memoirs are kept under lock and key at Lang's family retreat in America by his protective assistant and mistress (Cattrall), surrounded by a desolate and barren landscape, across which the ghost re-traces his predecessors steps and uncovers startling truths.
The Ghost is tense and haunting and subtly submerges audiences into the dangers the ghost uncovers, as he unravels the mystery behind his predecessor's death. The plot thickens further as Lang is accused of war crimes, but will he solve the codes his predecessor hid in his original manuscript in time?
Hailed by The Independent on Sunday as "intelligent" and "one of the best thrillers of the century" by Shortlist, The Ghost is an essential addition to any DVD and Blu-ray collection from 30th August 2010.
