    Beautiful Movie With an Interesting Message
    "Ghostlight" is a beautiful comedy-drama that makes its audience laugh and cry constantly without giving any cues about what comes next. The family drama closely resembles real life, capturing frustrations, disappointments, avoidance, anger, and doubts both within oneself and among each other. I liked how the dad gradually loosened up and expressed his emotions, and how he as a professional actor acted as a rookie in their play and slowly became a little better. The movie conveys a significant lesson: the family members are growing apart with seemingly no hope of reconciliation. Even in a mock deposition session, the mother expressed her longing, saying, "I want to have my family back, that's all." However, they discover a common passion for "the play" and begin to get involved in it. This shared joyful activity helps them acknowledge each other's emotions, bring them closer, and ultimately, restore a healthy family dynamic, and perhaps drop the lawsuit.
