Storyline

Keith Bennets 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? Written by Mark Thompson

Mother Ghost, excellent movie
1 December 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought Mother Ghost was an excellent movie. I highly recommend it, especially to people who might be having a hard time dealing with the loss of a loved one. I have been a fan of the Mark and Brian Radio Program, from where Mark Thompson is most well known, so when I heard about this movie I thought I would check it out. I came across it by chance, as a local radio station was giving it away. I watched it and was very impressed with it, so impressed that I called KLOS Radio (where Mark and Brian work) and spoke to Mark directly. I told him that I really enjoyed his movie. So for those of you that enjoy humorous yet thought provoking movies, you will enjoy this.
