Serving In Silence: The Colonel Margarethe Cammermeyer Story is the multiple Emmy(r) Award-winning film about one woman's fight against the military's anti-gay policy. Starring five-time Academy Award(r) nominee* Glenn Close and three-time Emmy(r) Award winner Judy Davis (2001, Outstanding Lead Actress, "Life with Judy Garland: Me and My Shadows"), SERVING IN SILENCE is both an inspirational tale of courage and conviction and a touching and beautiful love story.After serving in the military for more than twenty years, including a tour of duty in Vietnam, Colonel Margarethe Cammermeyer (Close) had seen her share of battles. But nothing could prepare her for the fight ahead: an intensely personal struggle against the U.S. Army when she is discharged for being a lesbian. With the support of her partner Diane (Davis), Cammermeyer undertakes an against-all-odds battle against the Army's policy. But to do so, she must risk everything: her career, her privacy and even the love of her family.*1989 Best Actress Dangerous Liaisons; 1988 Best Actress, Fatal Attraction; 1985 Best Supporting Actress, The Natural; 1984 Best Supporting Actress, The Big Chill; 1983 Best Supporting Actress, The World According to Garp
