The army is a tough, no bones about it. In Elegance Bratton’s The Inspection, when you are a gay man joining the Marines that’s another level. Ahead of it’s UK cinema release, Signature Entertainment have released a new tense clip.

Jeremy Pope is Ellis French, a man rejected by his mother because of his sexuality. He’ll do anything to fit in and be accepted, he finds that amongst the prejudice of joining the Marine Corp. An camaraderie belonging to something will shape Ellis.

Our writer Freda Cooper watched the film recently, giving it 4 stars. Freda commented ‘The addition of dream sequences occasionally softens the frequent blows, giving the film an identity of its own so that it stands apart from others which have walked a similar path.’
