Great movie about what happens after you get kicked out of the military for being gay. Many of the characters were underdeveloped. The writing was average. BUT, considering how few movies we have that tackle LGBT issues in the military, it was decent. I would recommend it.

If you're LGBT, queer, etc - you may like this movie as much as I did. To me, it's heart-warming, moralistic and mostly positive -focused. A lesbian officer is forced to leave the military - without pension rights; and encounters small-town hate-crimes in her home town. Extras include Obama signing the bill that ended "Don't Ask, Don't Tell", and established more equal rights.

There were some good strong characters, well played but the incessant flag waving and dull story line got in their way.

This movie was terrible. “Dumb, boring and stupid” Waste of time - Waste of Electrical power.
It would be a waste of money to buy. "I fast forwarded all the way."
