Audience Reviews for Mother Ghost

In this film the main character Keith (played with emotional nakedness by Mark Thompson) lives in a state of denial as to the effect his mother's death has had upon his ability to function in life. He feels like he has moved on with his life but his wife claims that he has become distant shutting her out and if things don't improve, she will take their only son and leave. Forced with this ultimatum, Keith winds up on the phone with radio Psychiatrist Kevin Pollak, who offers help to Keith and guides him through what he cannot see on his own. Using creative situations and humor, the story propels an otherwise mundane premise into a real treat for the senses as Keith learns much emotional growth in the film, and in turn I feel that he brings that growth to the viewer as well. This one hits the heart deeply and some parts will make you laugh and openly sob.

Featuring some great actors: Kevin Pollak, Dana Delany, Garry Marshall, Charles Durning, David Keith, and even a cameo from James Franco as the guy he talks to just before going live on the radio.

Super Reviewer

Overly-earnest film festival fodder with nothing to offer that common sense doesn't already provide.
