Once in a great while a movie comes along that truly grips and uplifts its audiences. Such a movie is An Officer And A Gentleman, a timeless tale of romance, friendship, and growth. Loner Zack Mayo (Richard Gere) enters Officer Candidate School to become a Navy pilot and in thirteen tortuous weeks he learns the importance of discipline, love and friendship. Louis Gossett, Jr. brilliantly plays the tough drill instructor who teaches Zack that no man can make it alone. Despite Gossett's warnings about the local girls who get pregnant to catch themselves pilot husbands, Zack eventually learns to love one (Debra Winger). An Officer And A Gentleman is a rich and satisfying film that gets richer with repeated viewings.
