DVD of the Week: ‘Soldier’s Girl’DVD of the Week Thursday, June 30th, 2011
Of course, if you’re less enamored with patriotism on July 4, Soldier’s Girl may be for you. The acclaimed 2003 film is about the events that led to the murder of Pfc. Barry Winchell (Troy Garity) on the July 4 weekend of 1999. He was killed following intense harassment about his relationship with transgender performer Calpernia Addams (Lee Pace). Harassment that the Army ignored. Both Pace and Garity were nominated for numerous awards for their roles. The film is a reminder that Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell has yet to be fully eradicated.
