    Where do you go after you die? While many go to another realm, M (Affleck) returns to his old house, to watch over his grieving partner C (Mara) – and, after she moves on, a sequence of other inhabitants. Lowry’s audacious idea, that the ghost – unseen but not entirely unnoticed by mortal souls – should be portrayed by Affleck under a seemingly simple white sheet, is a great success. This spirit is a melancholy presence at the heart of a beautifully-shot, poignant and sometimes funny study of loss and the nature of a home. Full details. Halloween double bill at discount cost.
