In theatres Feb. 19:
U.S Marshall Teddy Daniels (Leonardo DiCaprio) investigates the disappearance of a patient at an isolated hospital for the criminally insane. He runs into obstacles in his investigation and begins to question his own sanity. The trailers almost make this look like a haunted house tale with a spooky looking locale and people who look like they know things they shouldn’t. But this is a Martin Scorsese film and he’s not about the supernatural, he’s about crime noir. This one looks like an atmospheric thriller. Rated R for disturbing violent content, language and some nudity.
The Ghost Writer
Never miss a local story.
A ghost writer (Ewan McGregor) is hired to write the memoirs of a former British prime minister (Pierce Brosnan). When he begins investigating his subject, a whole lot of trouble seems to come his way for his paycheck. Interestingly, this film is directed by controversial director Roman Polanski, which might bring a whole different sort of attention to this film. Rated PG-13 for language, brief nudity, sexuality, some violence and a drug reference.
