Soldier’s Girl is an excellent movie, with spot-on performances from Troy Garity as Barry Winchell, and Shawn Hatosy as Fisher. Lee Pace is as convincing as can be as the transgendered Calpernia. The tragic story plays out very realistically. Winchell falls for Calpernia and is harassed by his comrades for it, as well as punishing himself with guilt and doubts. We feel his anguish.
The Army is portrayed rather negatively, as a corral of drunks, half-wits, and societal rejects. I don’t think we see an officer during the entire flick. Philip Eddolls does a commendable job portraying Glover, the deranged teen soldier, obviously shoved into the Army to avoid some sort of trouble in civilian life. We are not particularly surprised when he turns homicidal in the finale, his unbridled rage making the expected tragic element in the story somewhat shocking just the same.
The only weakness in the movie is that Lee Pace’s appearance is never really convincing as a beautiful transsexual. He looks rather manly throughout and would clearly be ‘clocked’ in about two seconds out in the real world (unlike, say, Jay Davidson in The Crying Game). Neither make-up, surgery, supposed hormones, or Pace’s considerable acting skill can pull off the idea that he is a stunning “trannie”. His Calpernia would not have won any pageants, and thus blows (sorry) the tenth star in my rating.
However, that last bit aside, this powerful movie is a must-see!
