Dreya Weber is back on the screen in a new jaw-dropping, heart-pounding Ned Farr-directed drama titled A Marine Story. The famous acrobatic genius behind superstars Pink, Madonna, Britney Spears, Carrie Underwood, Cher, Michael Jackson’s ill-fated This Is It concert, and the 2002 Winter Olympics is hitting the ground running as a Marine officer deployed back home following a very timely “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” military investigation.
When incriminating emails and photographs surface on base, Alexandra (Dreya Weber) is forced to step down and go home one year short of receiving her military pension. Even her faux marriage to a man (Troy Ruptash) doesn’t save her career from speculating eyes.
Upon returning to California, Alexandra keeps hidden the reason she is back home. Bar brawls, wagging tongues and waving fist fights ensue and she is forced to consider relocating once again to save herself from being discovered as a homosexual.
Things take a turn when a troubled teen addicted to meth (Paris Pickard) is given the choice of either reporting to prison or joining the military. The officer in charge of the case asks Alexandra to put the girl, named Saffron, through “boot camp” and help her get back on the right track. She accepts the challenge and the movie takes a brief light-hearted turn.
It doesn’t last long, though. Unfortunately for Alexandra and Saffron, there is an anti-gay bully in town out to pin the homosexual letter to both of their jackets.
A Marine Story will premiere at the Seattle Lesbian & Gay Film Festival on October 19, 2010. The Egyptian Theatre (805 East Pine Street, Seattle, WA 98122) will host the film starting at 6:30pm. Get your tickets here for $10.00.
