Ewan McGregor and Pierce Brosnan star in this wonderfully intricate and intense international thriller. When a successful British ghost writer agrees to complete the memoirs of Adam Lang, the former British Prime Minister, his agent assures him it's the opportunity of a lifetime. But the project seems suspect from the start, not least because his writing predecessor on the project died in an unfortunate accident. McGregor?s character begins to uncover clues suggesting his predecessor may have stumbled on a very dark secret and that somehow this information is hidden in the manuscript he left behind. Resonating with global themes, this atmospheric and suspenseful political thriller is a story in which nothing, and no one, is as it seems. It will keep you on the edge of your seat!
The best thing Polanski has done since the seventies when he brought out the incomparable Chinatown. - David Denby, New Yorker
