April Wish's high “Clementine” is a hilarious take on Motherhood. Through her travels and travails, perils and escapades, and overall “Miss-adventures” with her daughter Clementine, Wish shares with equal and intense passion about her children through both the funny and the downright painful aspects of childbearing, child rearing, and childhood “projecting.” As she wades through a stage chock full of toys, costumes, and the stuff of childhood fantasies, along with the use of projections of some rather hysterical early videos, Wish presents a series of anecdotes that segue well between her own creative childhood, her desire and pursuit as an actress, the the effects of motherhood on her body, her marriage, and her career. In there as well is some very poignant history and reflections on her family's own heritage and those she had more to say to. Sounds like a lot? It is. About 75 minutes worth. But Wish does bring a lot of charm to fill it. (NO EXTERNAL URL LINK)
