Top Customer Reviews
After many years of service in tough, overseas postings, a woman officer in the US Marine Corps - Alexandra Everett - played by Dreya Weber, is suddenly accused of being a lesbian, after some anonymous accusations. She is advised to resign before an official investigation, so she can get an honourable discharge, but won't get her pension as she still has another year to go. On the day of returning to her sleepy hometown she helps arrest some teenagers stealing from a convenience store. The judge gives the girl - Saffron - played by Paris P. Pickard, a choice between going to jail or joining the military. Everett is asked by the sheriff to give her some basic training to get her through the first round of selection. Saffron is very hostile to authority, but as the story progresses we see how the relationship works out.
As well as a serious side to the movie, there is plenty of humour and, very important, one can identify with the characters and feel part of their life stories.
Refreshing and a good story to sit and chill out on.
Dislikes - nothing that I can point out to. The only reason why I didn't give it 5 stars is only because, honestly - I had to reserve it for those I really, really love..
This is actually a serious film which I had wrongly dismissed.
It is a well crafted tale from or in answer to the 'don't ask don't tell' campaign.
The characters are well developed as the film progresses and the story unfolds in an engaging manner.
It was well told with some predictable moments but with plenty of heart and some originality too.
Brief behind shower nudity, women kissing, occasional f-bomb. Good acting, although for a straight male the drama and action is difficult to relate to.
