Critic Reviews for Clara's Ghost

All Critics (16) | 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.

Jan 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.

Top Critic

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.

Jan 19, 2018 | Full Review…

Messy and abrasive, it's a difficult film to get through, but the comedy is solid and the underlying themes are well realized.

Nov 8, 2018 | Rating: 6/10 | Full Review…

The performances are strong across the board and there's a novelty to seeing the entire Elliott family act together, but too often the movie is so inward-looking and self-conscious to work as either comedy or drama.
