Clara's Ghost

Clara's Ghost

A FILM BY: Bridey Elliott
WRITTEN BY: Bridey Elliott
STARRING: Paula Niedert Elliott, Chris Elliott, Abby Elliott

Midwest Premiere

In a true family affair, actor Ted Reynolds (Chris Elliot) and Clara (his real-life wife Paula Niedert Elliott), his scattered, homemaker wife, welcome their 20-something daughters—a pair of former child stars (and real sisters, SNL alum Abby Elliottand writer/director Bridey Elliott)—back to their Connecticut home so Ted and the girls can be in a family-themed photo shoot for an airplane magazine. The hard-drinking clan’s banter becomes increasingly bitter and petty, and the reunion devolves into a drunken, hurtful and darkly funny mess. As if that weren’t enough, a ghost that only Clara can see urges her to confront her self-centered family.
