Storyline

1989: Caroline Meagher is a sergeant with the Royal Military Police, with 12 years' experience, stationed in Northern Ireland. Two men from internal affairs grill her for four days: someone has accused her of being a lesbian. It's an offense that leads to court martial. In a series of flashbacks, we see her enthusiasm when she joins the force, her various assignments including investigating suspected lesbians, and her own slow discovery of her sexual nature. She, like others in her situation, must go to great lengths to avoid detection. Once reported, will she withstand the interrogation? Meagher herself comments on camera at the end of the film.

The Investigator
29 March 2006 | by (St. Louis) – See all my reviews

Excellent hard to find movie, that was on TV in the UK. Why has it not been released on video or DVD? Who knows? On TV in 1997, and made a hit with the mainstream lesbian movie watchers. Shows at about the time Clinton was starting the don't ask, don't tell thing about the military, this goes to show what is really going on in the military. Of course this is set in England, but the same rings through for the states or anyone else in a military setting or governmental run agency. This movie can be had if someone really wants to find it....you can do a search in google, and who knows? Truly a well done movie, great love scenes, and a ending that will knock your socks off!
