“ 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.
