The Ghost Writer

Rated PG-13 128 min. 2010

Roman Polanski's Ghost Writer is a snappy thriller about a writer-for-hire (Ewan McGregor) from London sent to a small out-of-season resort town in the northeastern U.S. to revise the memoir of a former British Prime Minister (Pierce Brosnan). McGregor makes his incorrigible smartass of a character into a winsome charmer, and his light-footed performance is a delight, but the real star here is Polanski, returning to his revisionist take on the lone wolf, and having an awful lot of fun doing it. Brimming with clever little touches and uneasy humor, Polanski makes obligatory exposition scenes riveting with his masterful technique and great sense of humor.
