A fatal, off-screen car crash interrupts the picturesque, suburban lives of a young married couple in David Lowery's "A Ghost Story," marooning the deceased husband (Casey Affleck) in a kind of purgatory as a watchful, mostly benign ghost.No, the most audacious display of cinematic extreme in "A Ghost Story" is a scene where the ghost watches his widowed wife (Rooney Mara), in a fit of grief and hunger, eat pie."A Ghost Story" may sound like a punchline. The question at the center of "A Ghost Story" is What endures?"A Ghost Story" makes a gentle peace with its own futility. It, too, will one day perish, and it's perhaps fitting to contemplate such inevitable ends at this particular movie-going moment – when cinema often feels like a wayward ghost of itself.It's possible to admire "A Ghost Story" for its pursuit of something profound, while being totally unmoved by it.
