After 35 years of marriage Alison's husband’s death comes as a heavy blow, but now one year on, her local paranormal group ‘Bump in the Dark’ have helped her to move forward. Encountering ghosts on a daily basis isn’t out of the ordinary for Alison, but her son James struggles to show the same enthusiasm for her new found ‘hobby’ in front of the documentary crew that are following her around.
Ghosted explores the unique ways in which people come to terms with their loss and grief.
We're very lucky to have Alison Steadman playing the lead role in the film. Her extensive credits include: Abigail's Party, Life is Sweet, Gavin and Stacey, Fat Friends and Pride and Prejudice... just to name a few.
Alistair Green, playing the part of Alison's son James, is a fantastic actor and standup comedian. His recent credits include: GameFace, Flowers and Revolting.
