Critic Reviews for Clara

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (1)

The well-acted Clara lacks clarity, and there's nothing worse than an out-of-focus telescope.

This film is custom-tailored to elicit a profound reaction from the audience and to do so it takes turns favouring your heart and your mind.

Dec 7, 2018 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

It does gain traction in its final 20 minutes, when Clara's big reveal appears and pays off most of the previous hour, but that sacrifices actual emotion for dutifully plotted emotional beats.

While a handful of Sherman's plot elements are predictable and visible from space, Clara remains a gorgeously mounted, well paced, admirably restrained, and exceptionally performed low-key crowd pleaser.

Nov 29, 2018 | Rating: 6.5/10 | Full Review…

It fails to envision a story, let alone a world, not built upon embattled-loner clichés and exhausted gender stereotypes.

Nov 28, 2018 | Full Review…

Kind of what you'd get if you crossed Carl Sagan's Contact with Erich Segal's Love Story. A sophisticated story that wears its heart on its sleeve.
