THE GHOST WRITER

Set in Martha’s Vineyard and shot off the coast of northern Germany, all is grey and grim and perpetually drizzly in Roman Polanski’s latest directorial effort, THE GHOST WRITER. We never learn the name of The Ghost (Ewan McGregor), who’s hired to finish the memoirs of Adam Lang, the former British Prime Minister, after the first ghost writer is found washed up on the beach, the first in a series of suspicious events that seem to hover around Lang’s house like the dense cloud of fog outside.
