Always worth trying
A film is always worth respect because it requires so much work. It is always difficult to pull through a project a bit too big. This film is unfortunately too amateurish. The framing is not always good, the cutting inadequate, the production values minimal. The story itself would have worked better had it been trimmed and further reworked. The actors do their best and the 2 older protagonists are doing ok. The younger actress has less moments. All these aspects could have used more preparation work. It takes time to make a good movie, even a short, and this one seems to have been rushed.

A review of This is Claireby **DELETED ACCOUNT** on 10/20/2013I would suggest trying to angle this film toward showing what the main character does that will make people understand her or like her. Just one experience - does she volunteer? What makes her a good person we want to be watching this for? I wanted to feel like I was rooting for her! I like the documentary feel - it seems real. I can tell immediately this is a 'real' person... read
