Sundance Film Review: ‘Clara’s Ghost’

Sundance Film Review: ‘Clara’s Ghost’
Bridey Elliott’s debut feature as writer-director is an idiosyncratic goof whose primary interest lies in seeing her parents and sibling (she’s the daughter of comedian Chris Elliott) play presumably warped caricatures of themselves. The in-joke air can only float this enterprise so far, however. 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. Commercial prospects will be modest at best for a film whose near-square aspect ratio and improvisational-skit feel intended for the smallest possible screens.

A nonsensical much-ado-about-nothing tenor is established immediately as Clara (Paula Niedert Elliott) and Ted (Chris Elliott) drive along a lonely country road at night. She’s frantically looking for something that turns out to be no more than a shoe she thinks fell out of the car earlier — but she views this as crisis

Sundance Review: ‘Clara’s Ghost’ is Admirable in its Messiness

Sometimes funny, sometimes frustrating, always honest, Clara’s Ghost–written and directed by Bridey Elliott–is doing a lot on a limited budget. It stars the entire Elliott family (sister Abby, father Chris, mother Paula and Bridey herself) over the course of one strange, drunk evening. With a brisk runtime and set almost entirely in a big ole house, plenty of character tangents are introduced and nothing is really resolved. In a way, it’s admirable in its messiness.

There’s the mother, our ostensible lead here, who feels invisible next to her famous family members. She’s also being haunted by a overly-metaphorical ghost. In an impressive turn from Chris Elliott, there’s the father, an ex-comedy star struggling with the ex part. There’s the sister, obsessed with herself and her upcoming wedding, portrayed by Abby Elliott, offering a bravely complex performance. And finally, there’s Bridey herself,

Why Abby Elliott is Tuning In To 'Saturday Night Live' Again

On the latest episode of Saturday Night Live, Alec Baldwin's bronzed-up and wig-wearing President Trump was visited by his ghosts of Christmas past.

And partly now thanks to Baldwin (and Trump) some former SNL cast members are revisiting the longtime sketch series. 

"I wasn't watching on a regular basis," Abby Elliott told The Hollywood Reporter in a recent chat while promoting her new "Adulting" series with the brand Swiffer.

Now she and her father, fellow SNL alum Chris Elliott, are tuning back in, "Since Trump we have started to tune in again. Alec is amazing and does such a...
