What is Blithe Spirit About?
The movie’s premise takes the audience back to England in the 1930s, where Charles Condomine, a highly accomplished crime novelist, is suffering from writer’s block. Thinking he needs divine intervention, he seeks the help of a medium, Madame Arcati. Madame Arcati summons the ghost of Charles’ first wife, Elvira Condomine. Elvira’s ghost helps Charles find inspiration to fuel his writing.
However, not everyone is happy with her presence, least of all Charles’ infuriated current wife, Ruth. Elvira’s ghost is just another addition to Ruth’s list of frustrations, which already has a struggling husband in it. The film then follows the hilarious turn of events as the characters try to figure out a way to appease the situation. The film manages to shine through the wonderful performances of the lead actors.
