I, Claudia

Canada 2004, 75 min, drama
Director:  Chris Abraham

Adapted from a Toronto Fringe Festival play, I, Claudia is a one-woman tour de force for writer-actor Kristen Thomson. Claudia is an “official” pre-teen, still reeling from her parents’ divorce. Her father is getting re-married, she has a science fair project coming due, and she is in the physical and emotional throes of puberty.  What truly sets the film apart is not just that Thomson plays all the roles—Claudia, her grandfather Douglas, her father’s new girlfriend Leslie and the school custodian Drachman—but that she performs them in mask.  A deeply engaging portrait of adolescence, which National Post reviewer Katrina Onstad called “... a masterful accomplishment! Brilliant... charming and heartbreaking, but funny, funny, funny!”
