Critic Reviews for Clara's Ghost

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (4)

Writer-director Bridey Elliott's debut feature has more wit and ingenuity than is suggested by its familiar logline - and in fact this playful, intelligent film is a genuine original.

Clara's Ghost more often feels directionless and tedious.

January 23, 2018 | Full Review…

In the end, there's not enough of distinction or substance to make this absurdist family comedy with a haunted-house angle feel like more than a short's worth of ideas stretched too thin.

January 21, 2018 | Full Review…

Infrequent actress Paula Niedert Elliott delights in the titular role with a quirky, sympathetic performance that gradually reveals the extent of Clara's psychological wounds.

January 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Bridey [Elliot] is clearly a studied filmmaker. She doesn't just understand her father's signature comedy formula that so deftly combines pathos and lowbrow humor. Her brand of comedy is doused with the dark paranoia of a Roman Polanski film.

Sometimes funny, sometimes frustrating, always honest.
