The Ghost Writer (2010)

()

Drama, Mystery, Thriller

The film stars Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Kim Catrall, Olivia Williams, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Hutton, & Eli Wallach and is directed by Academy Award-winner Roman Polanksi.

A gifted author hired to ghostwrite the memoirs of a controversial former British Prime Minister becomes a hunted man when he uncovers explosive secrets about the past. Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Olivia Williams and Kim Catrall star in The Ghost Writer, a taut, suspenseful thriller from director of The Piano.

The Ghost (McGregor) senses somethings not right from the minute he gets the lucrative assignment to complete Adam Langs (Brosnan) autobiography. For starters, the previous ghostwriter, a longtime aide to the ex-Prime Minister, is dead—an apparent suicide victim. As Lang becomes engulfed in a scandal over his administrations harsh counterterrorism tactics, The Ghost digs into the charismatic politicians past, discovering clues that he may be hiding something far more shocking than the current allegations against him.
