The Ghost Writer

Roman Polanski's latest is an adaptation of Robert Harris' Hitchcockian novel. Ewan McGregor plays a ghost writer who's been hired to pen the memoirs of a former British prime minister (Pierce Brosnan). Unfortunately, the secrets he unearths put his life in danger. This canny mix of Chinatown, Sunset Boulevard and The Queen prove Polanski's still got the chops to helm a mesmerizing thriller. 128 minutes PG-13.
