Orion Classics has picked up the North American and Latin American rights to Bridey Elliott’s Sundance drama Clara’s Ghost, reports THR. The film is set to have its Midwest Premiere at the forthcoming Cinepocalypse in Chicago on Sunday, June 24th (get tickets).
Orion, recently relaunched by MGM as a multiplatform distribution label, will release the comedic mystery that features members of the Chris Elliott clan, including “SNL” alum and comedian daughter Abby and actor-filmmaker Bridey, in theaters, VOD and Digital HD in the fall of 2018.
Set over the course of a single evening in the Reynolds family home in suburban Connecticut, Clara’s Ghost follows Clara Reynolds who, fed up with constant ribbing from her self-absorbed showbiz family, finds solace in and guidance from the supernatural force she believes is haunting her.
The film marks the directorial debut for Bridey Elliott, who also wrote and stars in Clara’s Ghost.
“I grew up in a family who treasures the art of filmmaking so being able to work with my dad, mom, sister and the rest of this incredible cast on my first feature is a dream come true,” she said.
The ensemble cast includes Chris Elliott, Isidora Goreshter, Haley Joel Osment and Paula Niedert Elliott as Clara.
Clara’s Ghost debuted at Sundance and will continue its festival play at BAMcinemaFest on June 21.
