Last day Thursday, July 11.

Devastated by the loss of a child, middle-aged father Dan struggles to control his anger at work and grows distant from his grief-stricken family. When a stranger (Dolly De Leon, TRIANGLE OF SADNESS) bullies him into joining a floundering community theater production of Romeo and Juliet, Dan slowly begins to reopen to life’s possibilities.

With breakout performances from the real-life Kupferer family in the lead roles and a cathartic ending for the ages, this funny and bittersweet film celebrates the profound love at the heart of the deepest grief, and the pleasures of putting on a show.

GHOSTLIGHT is an official selection of Sundance and SXSW.


“This is a beautifully life-affirming fable about the power of art to heal.” –Katie Walsh, Los Angeles Times
