Ghost Writer is a film directed by Roman Polanski that's about a biographer who is helping a disgraced former British Prime Minister write his memoirs. It stars Ewan McGregor, Pierce Brosnan, Olivia Williams, and Tom Wilkinson.

Brosnan plays the Prime Minister whose previous literary collaborator unexpectedly washes up dead on the beach, due to a fatal case of writer's block. Publishers then hire McGregor to finish what the previous author had started. Along the way, Ewan investigates his subject's past and comes up with troublesome irregularities.

This film's pace and intrigue keeps things quite interesting for the viewer. Trust me when I say Ghost Writer is not a sequel to Jennifer Love Hewitt's terrible TV show, Ghost Whisperer. It's more like the old TV show, Murder She Wrote, except instead of an 80-year-old Jessica Fletcher, you have a nosy Jedi master. Ghost Writer is definitely worth renting and is, by far, the best film I have ever seen that was directed by a convicted child rapist.
