Movie Info

Claire, a suburban mother indulging in some good-natured hedonistic debauchery, receives word from her child that he is abandoning her as his mother. To win back his affection, she decides to carry a small rock half way around the world to its place of origin on a Mediterranean island. Along the way, she goes to work in a strange strip club on the edge of civilization where exotic dancers perform in an otherworldly space for abandoned souls just like her.

Critic Reviews for Menorca

All Critics (2)

It makes for a decidedly unique drama, mysterious and prudently erotic.

Menorca never really works. Barnard's script is a strange, fluid construction of ideas past their sell-by date, animated by characters who remain frustratingly underdeveloped... Still, Gillis keeps you watching.

Audience Reviews for Menorca

Rather dull and monotonous, Menorca is a character drama about a woman going through a midlife crisis. The story follows a soccer mom named Claire who abandons her family and takes up a hedonistic life as a waitress at a strip club. Claire is kind of an interesting character and even somewhat sympathetic; trapped in a life she didn't want and feeling disconnected from people. And Tammy Gillis gives a fairly strong performance. But the plot doesn't really go anywhere and Claire doesn't really change or have any transformative revelation. Despite a promising start, Menorca ends up being pretty pointless.
