Incredible story of one woman's journey to herself
8 July 2003 | by See all my reviews

Trisha Todd's portrayal of Claire is agonizingly realistic. As the movie opens we see her in turmoil, clearly dissatisfied with her inability to find personal peace. Her life is lived superficially to this point. She reluctantly accepts an invitation to a writer's retreat and is thrown into sharing a room with a psychiatrist. When she later learns that her roommate is a lesbian, Claire begins to explore the possibilities of intimately connecting with others in ways she never imagined before. The interplay between Trisha Todd's Claire and Karen Trumbo's Noel is so much like real life in it's awkwardness. I highly recommend this for anyone that considers themselves a romantic. It is a classic lesbian chic flick.
