In 1997, new Army recruit Barry Winchell (Troy Garity) is assigned to a base in Tennessee. He quickly befriends the quick-tempered Justin Fisher (Shawn Hatosy), who struggles with drug problems. One night, they venture out to a local bar hosting a drag show. Calpernia Addams (Lee Pace), a transsexual drag queen, fascinates Barry, and they strike up a relationship.

    Made for TV quality, but a good and bold story. Props to Shawn Hatosy for his strong performance.

    Oh my goodness this was really, really, really good. I had no idea that this was a true story until the end. I just got done watching this and I am still reeling from it. It is just as good as Boy's Don't Cry. There is a great bonus feature on the DVD that explains the whole case with the real people that the movie was about. Well done movie that honors this poor soldier.

    Lee Pace is honestly brilliant. Probably one of the best yet unknown actors out there these days. This movie was very well done, I comend all the special effects people for turning Lee into a stunning and classy woman. The story is heartfelt and honest. It holds nothing back, it is what it is. A very intense and emotion-filled film. What did this movie teach me? Stupid, violent, pigs should not be allowed in the military.

    In "Soldier's Girl," Fisher(Shawn Hatosy) takes his fellow soldiers to Visions, a nightclub in Nashville where you need a scorecard to tell the men from the women, to taunt the performers.(Well, that's what he says but later he ends up making out with one of the singers...) Mostly, he takes aim at Calpernia(Lee Pace), wondering aloud if her breasts are real. Since she is a pre-op transsexual, the answer might be a little complicated. What is rather simple is her attraction to Barry(Troy Garity), Fisher's roommate, who she invites backstage and gives his her phone number. The first person seen in "A Soldier's Girl" is a man dressed up as Queen Elizabeth I who was monarch when William Shakespeare's tragedies were first performed with men acting as women. Based on a true story, this is a very touching, heartfelt, well-acted and even occasionally erotic movie about how gender and sexual orientation are fluid, but this is not New York or San Francisco. It is the heartland of America where acceptance is surprisngly the order of the day. Not so with the military with its very macho attitude and the asinine Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy which should be repealed as soon as possible. See, there are times when compromise can backfire.
