An Officer and a Gentleman 
Made Gere a House Hold Name..
3.5/4 stars

I was amazed to see the low ratings on this recent classic movie by Taylor Hackford. It brought forward young actors (Gere, Winger, Keith, Caruso) and older ones- Lou Gossett Jr.- with truly outstanding performances in an initially unknown film. What a treat to see it again. The actors, the setting, the depth and authenticity of this film were as powerful as ever. It was created and recreated from a real memoir of Naval Officer Training. It was reset in a wholly different world from Florida to Washington State but it was the people. the romance the realism of the feelings and conflicts of young people facing the world and each other that make it a grand operatic film. Scored with Rock and Roll and a famous Theme song, it is a movie about youth that speaks to all ages in both fantastic and dramatic terms. It has atmosphere remarkably authentic without the cooperation of the Navy. It is of its time - the 1980's yet is still meaningful in 2001. The story, directing and acting are fully outstanding. A must see for a classic movie fan!
