"Kristen Thomson's portrait of a wonderfully winsome young woman trembling on the cusp of adolescence is one of the freshest things to hit the stage in many a season... I, Claudia is blissfully funny and unexpectedly touching." "Kristen Thomson is the real theatrical thing…she can rock her audience—she certianly rocked me—on a regular basis with lines and moments that are hilariously funny, totally unexpected and unimpeachably true."—Robert Cushman National Post

Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
The four characters reveal themsleves with deceptively simple lines that are delivered with an authtiticity uncommon in most film characters.
Every main character wears a mask and speaks in a distinctive voice and I was fascinated by the contrast between their appearances (bizarre and theatrical) and the delicate nuance of their insight into the variety of human prediciment.
The ending came upon me a bit suddenly. It is I think it is full of symbolic depth but I also think that I will need to see it again to understand it fully.
See this film!
It is funny, and bittersweet, and at the very least you will be awed by the brilliance of the woman (Kristen Thomson) who wrote and performed all four charaters by herself.
Thank you Kristen for this gift!
but seriously, go see it. or read it. whatever. just DO it. nike..argh. nike sucks.
