The Ghost Writer

Hey, it's a Roman Polanski movie! The Ghost Writer is about... well... a ghost writer! (In fact, we never do find out his name.) He is helping out on some political memoirs and starting finding out more than he wants to about the ins and outs of who's working for who. I'm not entirely sure of the exact connections going on, and not sure why the final revelation is so shocking, but I'm sure it all makes sense to someone.

But, hey, check out the cast list: Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Kim Cattrall, Olivia Williams, Tom Wilkinson, Timothy Hutton, James Belushi, Jon Bernthal... I am wondering how many signed on because of the subject matter... and how many said yes just because it's Polanski...

Decent enough movie, although could be clearer.
