Ghost - A Love Story Movie Review

"Ghost" is one of the most popular romantic movies of all time and it frequently appears near the top of the list for popular romantic movies and favorite movies for women. The emotional pull of the movie is provided by the yearning of the two lovers to be together despite the death of one of the partners.

Ghost was directed by Jerry Tucker and the leading characters are played by Demi Moore and Patrick Swayze, with a strong supporting role for Whoopie Goldberg, who won an Academy Award for her performance in this role. To date, it has earned more than $500 million worldwide and a stage production is scheduled to open in the West End in 2010.

Although there is a dramatic storyline which includes the murder of the husband, Sam (played by Patrick Swayze) and an attempt by the villain to harm the wife, Molly (Demi Moore) as well Sam's friend, Oda Mae (Whoopie Goldberg), the real heart of the movie lies with the loving intimacy of Sam and Molly, both before and after his death.

There are a number of moving and tender moments as Sam's spirit attempts to make physical contact with Molly. One unforgettable scene has Molly seated at a potters wheel, shaping clay and she senses his lingering, loving embrace. The song "Unchained Melody" beautifully captures the feelings of the pair at this moment And More.
