A Ghost Story follows Mara, a grieving widow who is followed by the ghost of her husband (Affleck). The ghost, donning a white sheet with two holes for eyes, watches her closely, trying to reconnect with his loved ones as time goes by. Will Oldham, Sonia Acevedo, Rob Zabrecky and Liz Franke co-star in the film.

“We build our legacy piece by piece. And maybe the whole world will remember you, or maybe just a couple of people, but you do what you can to make sure you’re still around after you’re gone,” says Oldham in the trailer.

A Ghost Story opened at the Sundance Film Festival 2017 to positive reviews. Affleck most recently won the Oscar for Best Actor for his performance in Manchester By the Sea, and will next star and direct Light of My Life. Mara was last seen in Terrence Malick’s Song to Song and will next be seen as the title character in Mary Magdalene.

A Ghost Story is scheduled to be released on 7 July 2017, on the same day as Spider-Man: Homecoming. While the film has garnered critical acclaim, it will still be seen if people flock to the cinemas after the controversy that flocked Casey Affleck and the sexual harassment charges he is facing.

Here's the trailer for the film:
