Genre(s): Romantic Comedy, Fantasy
Charles Condomine has severe writer's block after he's asked to craft a new screenplay. Part of the reason he's struggling is because he hasn't been able to publish a word since the death of his first wife, Elvira, five years ago.
After watching a show by the eccentric clairvoyant and medium Madame Arcati with his second wife, Ruth, Charles becomes convinced that the woman is a fraud. Yet, he invites her to his home to conduct a seance to help give him inspiration.
When Madame Arcati accidentally summons Elvira's spirit from the next life, Charles enters into a strange and possibly deadly love triangle that breaks his writer's block and much more.
