    Sensitive and affecting but a but too underwhelming.

  • ★★★½ review by vaderules on Letterboxd

    Betsy Brandt delivers an impressive performance as Claire—a woman of logic and deduction whose investigations lead to answers that fall far afield from any hypothesis she could have conceived. As she encounters people and events from her missing husband’s life away from home, she’s forced to deal with not just realities about him, but also about herself. Anna Margaret Hollyman as Allison—an artist with many peculiarities and social oddities of her own—is also excellent. The fine performances aside, the plot of the film is almost entirely a red herring, but regardless of the resolution, writer/directors Annie J. Howell and Lisa Robinson keep us engrossed and guessing as events on screen unfold organically and realistically, allowing the mystery to perpetuate the story which is ultimately a path of self discovery for Claire. Claire in Motion is a well acted film with complex characters and situations that is well worth the watch, but ultimately concludes with an open ending that it hasn’t quite earned.

    film thriller-psychology

    seorang istri yg mencari suami karena tiba-tiba hilang secara misterius selama 3 minggu

    alur ena sih diikutin tapi banyak scene yg kebuang percuma

    pace nya jadi kurang nendang, karena ekspektasi berharap slow-burn lalu mencengangkan

    tapi eksekusinya semacam harus bilang "eng... ya masa gini? yailah"

    tapi ya lumayan lah karena emang seneng genre beginian

  • ★★★½ review by Ken Rudolph on Letterboxd

    Clair (a strong performance from "Breaking Bad" actress Betsy Brandt) is a math professor at the University of Ohio. Her husband, also a professor, leaves one morning on a wilderness survival hike, and then disappears...leaving Clair and her young son Connor (Zev Haworth) in limbo. Is he dead? Was this a planned runaway? That is the set up for this character driven drama, as Clair gradually learns that she really didn't know a lot about her husband's life that he had kept from her. The enigmatic script was quite good at keeping the audience in suspense while staying true to the characterizations.
