★★★½ review by Moviepsycho on Letterboxd
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.
★★★½ review by Waldo on Letterboxd
Betsy Brandt is very good as a mathematics professor and one morning her husband who's also a professor takes off for a hike in the mountains and never comes back. She starts to do the usual, call the cops, join the search, puts up posters until the trail starts to go cold. She now starts to reluctantly investigate for herself trying to find some peace of mind. Life in her college town has turned into a waking nightmare of loss and confusion. Slow paced but that's what this story needs. Brandt carries the film effortlessly. A good indie drama.
★★★★ review by Deborah Hildebrandt on Letterboxd
Outstanding performance by Betsy Brandt! The filmmakers did a fantastic job of executing a very interesting premise. Shot beautifully.
★★★½ review by harden on Letterboxd
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
