REVIEW: Canadian-made Clara a movie filled with wonder


The genuine performances and scientific awe let Canadian sci-fi romance Clara truly flourish.

Suits fans know him and love him, but Patrick J. Adams drops the lawyer act and puts on spectacles to play a brooding scientist on the verge of a great discovery.

Flawed, difficult and dealing with personal trauma, his Dr. Isaac Bruno is your typical archetype of a loner man filled with brilliance. Yet somehow, Adams brings this cliched character to life and keeps things compelling.

He and Troian Bellisario, who plays the research assistant he builds a relationship with, share the screen with grace, wit and formidable talent alike.

It’s an interesting, well-thought film with some great moments, even if it sometimes comes off heavy-handed.

3.5/5 Stars
