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.
Audience Reviews for Soldier's Girl
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.
