A crafty and very unique experience.
23 February 2002 | by (Sauk City, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

Movies that focus on the war in Vietnam now are almost completely forgotten. Well, "A Soldier's Sweetheart" is a different story and how the tale unfolds is remarkable. A soldier named Rat (Kiefer Sutherland) tells the tale that may seem like a tall one of how Fossie (Skeet Ulrich), an lonely army medic whom Rat had worked with a small Army hospital, who had his girlfirend, Marianne (Georgina Cates) flown in. Sutherland and Ulrich are fine here, but Cates steals the show here with a solid performance. A crafty and very unique experience.
