Claire of the Moon is a 1992 lesbian-themed rhetoric drama film. The film stars Trisha Todd and Karen Trumbo.


Claire of the Moon is set in the 1990s in the Pacific Northwest. Claire Jabrowski (Todd), a famous heterosexual author, decides to attend a retreat for all-female writers. Claire's roommate at the retreat is Dr. Noel Benedict, author of a book called The Naked Truth. The movie culminates in a sexual encounter between the two authors.[1]

Cultural significance[edit]

The film received solid reviews from the "L.A. Reader" and was successful in L.A., Seattle, Chicago, Portland and the entire Bay Area with the exception of San Francisco. However, lesbian critics gave the film poor reviews. Conn described Claire " a social phenomenon in the sense that it divided and explored the vast differences between the political dyke and Jane Q. Lesbo."[2]

The film would be lead actress Trisha Todds only acting credit. Since the films release she's worked as a drama teacher at Grant high school in Portland, OR.
