    Soldier's Girl

    hey, sorry if this topic has been made. I tried searching using "Soldier's Girl" "Soldiers Girl" ,etc.
    I just saw this movie on DVD. It just changed the way i think about things.
    I got interested from seeing it on the Golden Globes.
    What are your thoughts on this movie.
    Again i apologize if this movie has already been talked about.

    I haven't seen or heard of Soldier's Girl. I don't think that there is another thread on it so, it's all good.

    Is it similar to GI Jane or that Meg Ryan movie with the cover up?

    Based on a True Story
    Nope, nothing like those movies.
    It is about a guy named Barry Winchell who goes into the Army. Then later his "friend(fisher)" takes him to a club called "Visions"(not the actual name of the club) where he meets a dancer there Calpernia Adams. He meets her and falls in love with her. He later finds out that Cal is a transgendered person.
    He still loves her. He gets harassed. But still stays with Calpernia. Alot happens. I am going to re-watch it.
    But he ends up getting murdered by a 17 year old Mr. Glover, who appears to be retarded. Glover gets taunted by Fisher. Fisher starts a whole lot of problems. He exposed Barry's sexuality. Some say Barry was never gay.
    Barry and Glover got into some fights. Fisher makes fun of him getting beated up by a "faggot" That angers Glover.
    Fisher ends up talking Glover into taking a Baseball bat and hitting Barry with it.
    Very sad story.
    Its a Show Time movie

    DjDeluxay, thanks for the info. I didn't know that story but, it is VERY sad. I remember how I felt watching the attack scene on two TV movies about Matthew Sheppard. I don't know if I could watch something like that. Would you recommend something like that even though it's so sad and unjust?

    Brilliant performances by Troy Garity (son of Jane Fonda) and Lee Pace who plays Calpernia. At first I thought that Lee Pace was someone who was transgendered or going through the process as well, but no -whick makes the performance that much more amazing.

    They make movies about the dilemna of "coming out" or shutting up in the military and this takes it above and beyond - Semper fi

    I think you should see the movie. It is really good. I have watched it like 4 times already.
    It shows how they were unjust.
    I can't believe how a good job Troy Garity did on the movie. I like his hair better that way. I think the Army is just scared and knows nothing about people that are gay.
    They are just unsure about them. Maybe intimidated that they could be weaker than a person that is gay

    Yeah i can see it now
    did he do soldier's girl first? or Barbershop?
    I am proud of him making his own title instead of "Jane's son"
