Ladies Who Need More Love: Clara Webb (Byzantium)
Written by: L.S. Williams
It’s only towards the end of the movie that Clara’s motives start to be revealed to the audience, and because of this, she appears primarily as an antagonist. Somebody who manipulates and exploits, who treats her daughter badly, and who kills indiscriminately. However, as more of Clara’s story is revealed, it becomes clear that she is more than Eleanor believes her to be. She is a smart, strong, and even compassionate woman fighting against a sexist vampire ‘Order’ for the right of her and her daughter to not just to forge their own path, but also to simply exist.
My story can never be told. I write it over and over, wherever we find shelter. I write of what I cannot speak: the truth. I write all I know of it, then I throw that pages to the wind. Maybe the birds can read it.
