I remember when I first seen this film, I cried, I admit it. I did cry. Back then I just loved these type of films, love stories hehe. Now it’s a little different, I don’t watch as much love stores, unless they are very different, and this one was. A classic that has just recently been made into a musical, Ghost the musical. I was actually pleasantly surprised when I heard this, at least they didn’t re-make a film about it. I’m not sure how I would of felt about that, probably the same way I felt about Footloose, I am curious to know what the musical would be like, I don’t think I’ll be seeing it, but I am going to keep my ears open to see what the public thinks.
So anyway, what is this film about for those of you who haven’t seen it?
Sam (Patrick Swayze) and Molly (Demi Moore) are a very happy couple and deeply in love. Walking back to their new apartment after a night out at the theatre, they encounter a thief in a dark alley, and Sam is murdered. He finds himself trapped as a ghost and realises that his death was no accident. He must warn Molly about the danger that she is in. But as a ghost he can not be seen or heard by the living, and so he tries to communicate with Molly through Oda Mae Brown (Whoopi Goldberg), a psychic who didn’t even realise that her powers were real.
This is one of those films that will always have a special place in my heart when it comes to true love. It’s been quite a while since I seen it, but will have to buy the DVD again, since I lost it after I moved to the US from England. I hope you enjoyed this edition of the A to Z Challenge!
