The Ghost Writer

Another thrilling thriller from Roman Polanski. Oh, I gotta say that he can make the most mundane story into a back-chilling horror. So about the name of the movie, I didn't quite get it the first time. The term Ghost Writer refers the autobiographers, who are following their objective personnels like a ghost and make assumptions in literal way.

Replacing the ghost writer of former British PM after his mysterious death accident/suicide wasn't really a safe action even-though it was a tempting offer to take with quarter of a million.

But things do get suspicious. As a writer who wants to be a proper writer, he just feels like chasing the scoop, how can't he? So, things start to go wrong. Very wrong.
