An Officer and a Gentleman (1982)

Directed by
Taylor Hackford

Richard Gere plays Zack Mayo, a would-be navy pilot whose uptight attitude at training camp makes him the butt of drill sergeant Emil Foley's attentions. Similarly, Mayo's relationship with Paula Pokrifi is equally compromised because of his indifference, until the unexpected and tragic suicide of his best friend Sid Worsley becomes the catalyst for both his professional and personal maturity.

Taylor Hackford's drama follows its key protagonists through their 13 weeks of training and explores the emotions that shape all their lives in a film that is at heart an intense love story in a military setting.
