About The Ghost
When a successful British ghost writer (Ewan McGregor) agrees to complete the memoirs of former British Prime Minister Adam Lang (Pierce Brosnan), his agent assures him it's the opportunity of a lifetime. But the project seems doomed from the start - not least because his predecessor on the project died in an unfortunate accident. The day after he arrives to begin work, a former British cabinet minister accuses Lang of authorizing the illegal seizure of suspected terrorists and handing them over for torture by the CIA - a war crime. The Ghost then begins to uncover clues suggesting his predecessor may have stumbled on a dark secret linking Lang to the CIA - and that this information is hidden in the manuscript he left behind. Resonating with topical themes, this atmospheric and suspenseful political thriller is a story of deceit and betrayal on every level.
