Trivia

The patch worn on the shoulder of every soldier in the film is not the patch of the 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault). The only time the actual 101st patch is shown is during the stock footage of soldiers marching across the parade ground at Ft Campbell. The patch can be seen on the large banner. See more »

Goofs

During the first scene in the nightclub, when Calpernia leans backwards over the table, the prosthetic breast appliance worn by Lee Pace visibly puckers and separates twice. See more »

Excellent, powerful film
9 February 2004 | by (Chicago, IL, USA) – See all my reviews

I loved the film and I'm still remembering various scenes from it. As a victim of a gay hate bashing many years ago when I was 22 which almost killed me, it affected me deeply.

The military code of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" is stupid. As was the segretation of blacks and whites in the military until around 1943. As was the forbidding of interracial marriages in this country in a number of states until 1967. As was the internment of Asian American citizens during World War II. As is the antipathy against civil marriage for same-sex couples now. Where is "love" in all this? Why is it not even being mentioned? Love for one's country and for each other. Barry and Calpernia loved each other. What's wrong with that? When two people love each other and decide to share their lives together, that's a commitment between two people. Not a commitment with the government or any religion. They can only acknowledge the commitment in the way each does. Love doesn't recognize restrictions; it's universal.

Bigotry kills. This movie demonstrates that. Also, back to reality, I've read the commander (or whatever they're called) of Fort Campbell who never said a word about the anti-gay attitude of Fort Campbell at this time was recently promoted. Now what does that say about our government and the military?

I gave the movie a 10. I only wish I could give more people the same score.
