49. May 2/3, 2010 - Soldier's Girl (2003)

This is a really moving and upsetting story. It's fairly graphic, both sexually and violently, for a made-for-TV movie, but it was aired by Showtime (and they show Dexter, so I suppose this was tame for them). The story drags in the middle - it seems that it was intended to establish the strained relationship between Barry and the rest of his infantry unit, but the heart of the story is the relationship between Barry and Callie. The tension within the unit is obvious. You don't need to spend so much time on it. The scene with Callie in her living room towards the end is heartbreaking.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
