Movie Info

A free-spirited satirist and a staid sex therapist share a room on a writer's retreat for women and end up having a brief affair. Claire is a heterosexual writer who loves to sleep around, while lesbian Noel, the therapist, is still hurting from a recently failed relationship. Though the two women are total opposites, much of the film centers on their increasingly intimate philosophical discussions and debates held in the cabin of their Pacific Northwest retreat. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovimore

Critic Reviews for Claire of the Moon

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (4)

Despite the obvious sincerity of this project, the stilted acting by most of the secondary cast and the generally undistinguished direction give the script little chance to take root or take flight.

The dialogue is ponderous at such times, undercutting what might seem a more daring drama.

Top Critic

While the film undoubtedly attempts to pique the intellect, it is, above all else, a love story, and, as such, should rouse the emotions as well. For a number of reasons, it proves unable to do so.

Top Critic

Nicole Conn, who wrote and directed, has not yet learned to do either job with spontaneity and naturalness, and the function of each scene is made so awkwardly clear that we wonder why the characters don't catch on as quickly as we do.

Top Critic

Although the film is intelligent and full of passion, its polemical approach often takes the sizzle out of the story.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

The movie strains for sophistication and wit, but the dialogue is starch. The central figures are appealing and smart, bu their company is not. Fortunately, director Conn compensates for her drab script with some erotic imagery.
