5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun peeling away the mysterious layers Aug. 8 2010
By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
A ghostwriter (Ewan McGregor) is hired to replace a previous writer that was found waterlogged. His job is to go to a remote island and organize the memoirs of an ex-British Prime Minister Adam Lang (Pierce Brosnan.) He suspects not all is well but it takes a few discoveries to determine that there is more to the memoirs than just names and dates. He may not be an invective reporter but he is too nosy to let it go. What he cannot let go of could very well mean his life. Then again, maybe it will all work out for the best. We get to discover the layers of mystery together with the ghostwriter. We also get to tell him to "stay in the car" but does he ever listen.

The movie is formula and politically charged. Yet we get to enjoy the suspense without a lot of blood and gore, no excess of explicative's or over cranked chase scenes. Roman Polanski seems to have mellowed out in his old age. Watching the movie, a second time will reveal the clues that were not blatant or masked.

I like the review of old actors in this presentation. I was surprised to see Eli Wallach. Aside from Kim Cattrall's accent, she was believable. Once Pierce Brosnan left those bond movies he also has become pretty good and fit the part in this film. I first became aware of Ewan McGregor from "Angels & Demons" then I remember seeing him around in a retroactive since; He can make expressions that speak better than words.

I only saw the Blue-Ray version so I cannot comment on other versions. I did find the documentary: The Ghost Writer: Fiction or Reality. Useful in sorting out the writer from the director, from the book.

4.0 out of 5 stars A mystery solved through words Aug. 23 2010
The story starts with the Ghost (Ewan McGregor) taking up a job as a ghost writer to write the biography of the Prime Minister, Adam Lang (Pierce Brosnan). The last ghost writer that took up this job has just recently been found dead on the beach. The previous ghost writer, Mike, has left an entire manuscript very badly written and the Ghost only has a few weeks to write a final draft. Yet oddly, the Ghost cannot remove the manuscript from a certain room in the Prime Minister's home in the US. It's always raining on the island in which the home is located, giving the story a darker atmosphere.

Soon, after the Ghost starts questioning the Prime Minister and his wife to include in the biography, he realises that the Prime Minister never wanted to become a politician. It was only until later that he left acting school and pursued this dream. But why?

Things don't add up. Why did Mike die after he met up with the Prime Minister's colleague? Why does the Prime Minister and his wife's story seem unlikely? Is the Ghost getting into more trouble than he bargained for?
