The Ghost Writer is tense, unsettling and deeply thrilling story who is a mixture of mystery and thriller where Roman Polanski in a masterly manner combines paranoia and danger. Excellent directing with perfect acting of Ewan McGregor and Pierce Brosnan make this adaptation of novel by Robert Harris real pleasurable to watch. Special recommendation for fans of political thrillers.
