Casey Affleck Is In Another Movie, and Damnit, It Looks Amazing

It’s really annoying when problematic people continue to be given great parts, because it means I have to have a whole new conversation with my male white privilege, and that motherfucker is annoying. Here, at least, it appears that Casey Affleck plays a somewhat smaller role opposite Rooney Mara. Affleck plays a literal ghost in A Ghost Story, and the trailer looks gorgeous and evocative.

It also looks like the kind of Malick-esque movie that would annoy the hell out of me, but reviews out of Sundance were beyond stellar, and it comes from David Lowery, who directed Pete’s Dragon, which I absolutely adored. And you know it’s going to be good, because A24 is distributing it, and as much as I hate supporting Affleck, I love supporting the finest indie studio around these days.
