An Officer and a Gentleman

Old-school romance starring Richard Gere as Zack, an aloof Navy man training to become a pilot. Zack attempts to find his way in the world while clashing with his abrasive drill sergeant (Louis Gossett Jr., winner of Best Supporting Actor Golden Globe and Oscar for this role) and romancing working girl Paula (Debra Winger). Features the soaring hit Up Where We Belong ("where the eagles cry... on the mountain high"), performed by Joe Cocker, which won the BAFTA, Golden Globe and Oscar for Best Original Song.

Best Supporting Actor (Gossett Jr.) and Best Original Song at the Academy Awards and Golden Globes 1983. Best Original Song at the 1984 BAFTA Awards

Rarely does a film come along with so many finely-drawn characters to care about.

The best movie about love that I've seen in a long time. Maybe that's because it's not about "love" as a Hollywood concept, but about love as growth, as learning to accept other people for who and what they are.
