Movie Info

Three weeks after Claire's husband has mysteriously disappeared, the police have ended their investigation and her son is beginning to grieve. The only person who hasn't given up is Claire. Soon she discovers his troubling secrets, including an alluring yet manipulative graduate student with whom he had formed a close bond. As she digs deeper, Claire begins to lose her grip on how well she truly knew her husband and questions her own identity in the process. Claire in Motion twists the missing person thriller into an emotional take on uncertainty and loss.
