10 Things You Didn’t Know about Abby Elliott

It seems as though some families tend to stay in the same business one generation after the next and the choice to do so is kind of interesting since what you see with a lot of famous families is that the second or third generation either gives it a try and does fairly well or simply bows out and doesn’t pursue it, while the third generation tends to revive the interest or doesn’t go near it. Abby Elliott is the type that wants to do what her father and her grandfather before her did and is currently on her way

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,
