AN OFFICER AND A GENTLEMAN
When courage and love triumph over adversity
Loner Zack Mayo (Richard Gere) enters Officer Candidate School to become a Navy pilot, and in 13 torturous weeks, he learns the importance of discipline, love and friendship. Louis Gossett, Jr. won an Academy Award for his brilliant portrayal of Foley, the tough drill instructor who teaches Zack that no man can make it alone. And while Foley tries to warn the young officer about the local girls who will do anything to catch themselves pilot husbands, Zack eventually learns to love one (Debra Winger) while his fellow candidate, a memorable character portrayed by David Keith, struggles with a very different fate. Nominated for six Academy Awards and winner of two, An Officer and a Gentleman is a rich and satisfying story with moving performances that will stay with you long after the film has ended.
