Ms. Myers too often tells rather than shows, and she doesn't have the cinematic skill set to transform her idea into a fully satisfying movie, especially at this low-budget level.

The non-Monaghan parts of Fort Bliss tend to go watery.

A returning-soldier drama that answers the annoyingly ubiquitous "Can women have it all?" question with an exasperated "no."

The complicated psychological realities of army personnel require a tougher directorial treatment than the maudlin melodrama presented here.

A fairly conventional warrior-home-from-war drama lifted by a totally credible career-making performance by Michelle Monaghan.
