All three principal performances are superb.
... a reluctant thumbs-down.
Well, they need to just shut up and open their eyes. Soldier's Girl is not only the best film ever made by and for Showtime, it's also one of the best pictures of the year.
Garity... is a rarity among young actors today: He's passionate.
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.
A real gem of a made for TV movie. This deserved a cinematic release in my opinion. It's better than the majority of films that get released. Soldier's Girl tells of a beautiful true love story and it's shocking conclusion. There's a dreaded sense of knowing throughout this film. The tension doesn't so much build up, but is strongly hinted at. You just know when the young, impressionable and very angry soldier joins, that something bad is going to happen. The performances are incredible. Pace was literally unrecognisable. I say this as a fan of Pushing Daisies, and even I had to look up who the actor was. He captures the feminism of his character perfectly and makes it very understandable for a straight man to fall for him. Hatosy also gives an excellent turn, one of great hate but also empathy. It's a tragic and very brutal film with a sickening finale. Not in it's gratuity, but just because of the nature of it all. A film that says, perhaps sex should be taken out of the equation when it comes to love.
I guess it's Lee Pace week for me. (He never disapoints)
This (Showtime) movie is impressive on many levels. It touches on everything from the ridiculousness of some of the militaries policies (both on homosexuals serving and recruiting practices in general), sexual represion, and the beauty of true love.
The two main actors (Troy Garity & Lee Pace) do a truly amazing job at conveying the deep complexities of both of their (very different, but perfectly matched) characters.
Even though there are a few very poorly written (after school special) moments of dialog and some of the charaters are a little too over the top/sterotypical for their own good...the cast as a whole is strong enough to carry you past these minor irritations. And the message isn't too badly cheapened by it.
All things concidered it was a pretty powerful movie. And the fact that it is based on actual events...makes it a very timely and important film.
