However, Calpernia Addams was quite touchingly portrayed, and the love scenes between her and Winchell were presented in a moving fashion - on this basis (and also the detail seen in the more mundane moments of the two hanging out) that I consider this to be a great love story.

Surprisingly entertaining .

Winchell's fear was hinted at in many of his open-ended blow-ups with Fisher, and his confusion (which - though presented in beautiful fashion, is only really visible once) should've been depicted in greater detail - it would've done greater justice to his memory.

Played by Shawn Hatosy the performance is pretty stunning.

it was a very intense experience and I recommend this movie to anyone.

Waste of time and money in my opinion.

Otherwise, it is too long to watch just for a casual viewing.

The film is at once a stunning love story as well as an exposé of man's inhumanity to man and the rigid impact of the military still bound by ancient and crude rules of behavior.

Overall well worth watching.

Neither make-up, surgery, supposed hormones, or Pace's considerable acting skill can pull off the idea that he is a stunning "trannie".

Well worth watching.

The transformation of Lee Pace into the character of Calpernia Addams is both subtle and stunning, and I feel he really did serve the role much justice.

When I said the performances are stunning, I meant exactly that.

The ways he tries to understand his newfound sexuality are thoroughly engrossing.

Truly brazen and stunning.
