Movie Trailer Tuesday - The Ghost Writer

From Netflix:

A writer (Ewan McGregor) stumbles upon a long-hidden secret when he agrees to help former British Prime Minister Adam Lang (Pierce Brosnan) complete his memoirs on a remote island after the politician's assistant drowns in a mysterious accident. In director Roman Polanski's tense drama, the author realizes that his discovery threatens some very powerful people who will do anything to ensure that certain episodes from Lang's past remain buried.

Very subtle, yet mysterious and suspenseful. I love the dark and gloomy setting - it certainly adds to the tension of the story. I almost felt as if I was on the edge of my seat throughout the entire film.

Rated PG-13 for language, brief nudity/sexuality, some violence and a drug reference
