Col. Margarethe Cammermeyer has served in the army for over twenty years. She's just fallen in love with an artist she's met, she's going for a PhD, and has a job at the VA hospital, as well as in the reserves. She decides to upgrade her security rating, with an eye toward promotion, and during the interview, she tells the investigator that she is a lesbian. The army begins proceedings to discharge her.

Bad title, good movie
28 August 2002 | by (London) – See all my reviews

I seem to watch at least bits of this film every time it turns up (which it does surprisingly often). The title is a turnoff, but the film itself is excellent. Forget that it was "made for TV, based on a true story". (Actually those movies are some of the best.) It stars Glenn Close and Judy Davis as the gay lovers and they are both believable and appealing, especially Close, who is just wonderful as the army nurse who fights for her rights. The script and direction are fine. Give it a go.
