Overall well worth watching.

Waste of time and money in my opinion.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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

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.

Truly brazen and stunning.

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

Played by Shawn Hatosy the performance is pretty stunning.

Well worth watching.

Surprisingly entertaining .

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