Molly Henery of The Blogging Banshee writes, “Making her feature film debut, ‘Clock’ was written and directed by Alexis Jacknow. The film follows Ella, a happily married woman with a great career and a wonderful life. There’s just one problem; she doesn’t want to have kids. With everyone around her telling Ella she needs to start a family, she resorts to drastic measures to try and ‘fix’ whatever is making her not want children, but everything comes at a price.” Noting that the film is not perfect but the performances are a highlight, “Agron is fascinating to watch, in one moment making Ella seem like a woman with a perfect life, then in the next making Ella appear almost animalistic. There is a visceral side to Agron’s performance that heightens the tension, while also tugging at the heartstrings. Melora Hardin plays the seemingly helpful Dr. Elizabeth Simmons. What makes Hardin’s performance stand out is how she can convey a sense of professionalism and empathy, yet there is a sinister edge to her.”
Romance novelist, Emilia, returns home after a long absence, to reconnect with her children who also are finding their own paths to love.
