Claire (Micaela Wittman) is having a quarter-life crisis. After discovering her spiritual guru Tony Robbins and taking a Vinyasa Yoga Flow class, Claire finds herself on the path to enlightenment. And of course, she has to make a documentary about her journey. She hires cameraman Earl (Arthur De Larroche) to film her as she seeks wisdom from various spiritual guides. Claire is out of touch, tone deaf and downright delusional. She lives comfortable in a Beverly Hills home funded by her father and pretends to have some mysterious trauma that really doesn’t exist in her otherwise cushy and privileged life. After a series of disappointments, Claire is forced to face the truth about herself.
“I don’t want to be sad anymore. I just want to be happy all the time.”Claire
Written and directed by Micaela Wittman and Arthur De Larroche, Clairevoyant is a delightfully quirky mockumentary that offers heaping doses of both humor and cringe. Wittman is terrific as Claire, playing into the character’s naivety and awkwardness. The film accurately depicts both millennial angst and white woman privilege and offers criticism on the commodification of spirituality. At its heart though, it’s really about a delusional young woman trying to find her way in life.
Clairevoyant is available on digital and VOD.
