A Marine Story by Ned Farr, 2010 (NR)

with Dreya Weber, Paris P. Pickard, Christine Mourad, Rob Beddall, Anthony Michael Jones, Jason Williams, Deacon Conroy, John Lee Ames, Brad Light, Ned Mochel ...

A decorated officer from a military family, Alex (Dreya Weber) is unexpectedly discharged from duty. When she returns to her conservative hometown, the Marine struggles to readjust to civilian life, but agrees to mentor Saffron (Paris P. Pickard), a troubled teen who's enlisting. Alex is the no-nonsense role model and authority figure Saffron needs, but as Saffron finally hits her stride, Alex must find the courage to face her own demons.

Ok, another one, and yet, not. This movie, again a true story, is the story of many men and particularly woman in the US army, who had to face the "Don't ask don't tell" policy prohibiting military personnel from discriminating against or harassing closeted or bisexual service members or applicants, while barring openly gay, lesbian, or bisexual persons from military service. The first change occured on september 9, 2010, and while the DADT has been restored, the new order continues to explicitly prohibit the government from discharging or investigating openly gay personnel... until September 20, 2011, which should sign the end of the DADT policy. Although the storytelling is a bit TV style, the movie is not bad, it has its point, and well played, thanks to its lead actresses.
