A successful British ghostwriter, The Ghost, agrees to complete the memoirs of former British Prime Minister Adam Lang, the opportunity of a lifetime.

Resonating with topical themes, this atmospheric and suspenseful political thriller is a story of deceit and betrayal on every level — sexual, political and literary. In a world in which nothing, and no one, is as it seems, the past can be deadly — and history is decided by whoever survives to write it. Directed by Roman Polanski.
