Trivia:
When Roman Polanski was arrested September 2009 in Switzerland, post-production was never put on hold. He saw every step of the film and made all artistic decisions. He finished editing the movie while in a Swiss prison. In December 2009 Polanski was released on bail but placed under house arrest, where he remained when this movie was released.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: When the Ghost arrives in Edgartown in the borrowed BMW and pulls up in a parking lot, his vehicle is shown blocking another car parked at right angles to his. In the next medium shot, his vehicle is shown a good 6 feet or more further back and not blocking the other vehicle. In the next medium shot, when the Ghost turns his vehicle around to follow the GPS instructions, he starts from the original position blocking the other vehicle.See more »
Quotes:
[first lines]
The Ghost:You realize I know nothing about politics.
Rick Ricardelli:You voted for him, didn't you?
The Ghost:Adam Lang? Of course I did, everyone voted for him. He wasn't a politician, he was a craze.

Polanski and McGregor, a wonderful match, 22 February 2010
Author: maureenmcqueen from United States

Ewan McGregor gets rid of every ounce of glamour and allows his Polanskian character to emerge. I though, a few years ago, Polanski could have played him himself the way he played so beautifully in "The Tenant" Those two characters are not that far apart. Taking over an apartment or a job from someone who leaves the scene under very mysterious circumstances is practically the same thing. McGregor, however, is superb. In "The Ghost Writer" events play close to the knuckle. Who is Pierce Brosnan? Tony Blair? and Olivia Williams? Classic film-making at its best. Compelling and visually stunning. The score by Alexander Desplat reminded me of Bernard Herrman and the atmosphere is so thick that the film's 2 hours plus fly by at an amazing speed. Polanski at 77 doesn't show any signs of jadedness. He is in total control. Hurrah for that!
