THE GHOST WRITER

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

9.30PM SBS ★★★

Con­tro­ver­sial writer-di­rec­tor Ro­man Polan­ski com­pleted work on The Ghost Writer while liv­ing un­der house ar­rest in Switzer­land. Need­less to say, there are ob­vi­ous un­der­cur­rents of claus­tro­pho­bia, ner­vous ten­sion, gal­lows hu­mour and raw an­guish puls­ing through­out this slow-burn­ing thriller. Ewan McGre­gor plays the un­named pro­tag­o­nist of the tale, a jaded journo hired to pol­ish the mem­oirs of an em­bat­tled for­mer Bri­tish prime min­is­ter (Pierce Bros­nan).
