Claire of the Moon

Feature Film USA 1992

Claire Jabrowsky is a famous satirical writer; Noel Benedict is a successful psychologist and sexologist. Claire is blonde and self-confident, a smoker, and heterosexual; Noel is brunette, discreet and serious, a conservatively dressed lesbian. Destiny brings them together and they share a romantic apartment with a view of the sea during a retreat for women writers on the Pacific coast. Surrounded by a heterogeneous and slightly bizarre group of women, Claire and Noel (who are total opposites) argue, clash, philosophize and attract, in a game of repressed desire, until Claire "converts", in a sensual scene that becomes climax of the movie. The sexual tension slowly grows, while the two characters appear to confront each other only in long verbal duels and psychological battles, on a classical music  soundtrack . A film about identity and desire, both loved and criticized, Claire of the Moon marked a turning point for lesbian audiences when it was first released in 1992.
