Keith Bennet's mother passed away a year ago, and he feels like he has moved on with his life, until one morning his mothers jewelry shows up on Keiths bathroom sink. The same jewelry she was buried in. Keith tells his wife Karen, about the jewelry and that is the last straw. She claims he is distant and has shut her out. Now he thinks he is seeing things that aren't there and if things don't improve, she will take their only son and leave. Forced with the ultimatum, Keith launches himself on a day of reclamation. Keith winds up on the phone with a popular radio Psychiatrist who guides Keith through what he cannot see on his own. Keith discovers a new man and a new attitude. Several people are listening to Keith's plight on the radio and are making changes of their own. Is this dead visitor all in Keith's head or is she truly a Mother Ghost?
Mother Ghost is one of those little gems that when viewed it really surprises you and brings out all kinds of emotions within you. Mark Thompson stars as Keith Bennet but what is amazing is this man also wrote the film and before that he only had done tons of very small parts on various tv shows and movies but he's more known for one half of the Mark and Brian Radio Show eminating from Los Angeles and broadcasting over the US. That being said he does a terrific job as lead actor here leaving me very impressed. But by looking at the cover alone you can see the film blessed with fantastic talent all of which have many years experience in film. Besides Thompson the other highlight of the film is Kevin Pollak, he plays the psychiatrist and this is one for his best performance I have ever seen, truly amazing. The film will make you laugh through it's well-written story and characters as well as have you in tears by the end credits. A moving film that delivers on all fronts, it took me back to good old days of cinema when a movie was more than just that, Mother Ghost is a film the moves people and I suggest owning this great film today.
