I Am Vanessa Guillen 2022 Movie Review Poster Trailer Online
The story of a soldier Vanessa Guillen, murdered in an army base in Texas in 2020, which shocked America, is now a film titled ‘I am Vanessa Guillen’ on Netflix.
The trailer released by Netflix for the film ‘I am Vanessa Guillen’ is so powerful in its message against the practices of the US Army. It showcases how the army sweeps issues under the rug, including the wrongs committed by some of their soldiers.
The movie highlights the murder of a young female soldier Vanessa Guillen who was murdered by a fellow soldier and her body dismembered. It shows how the army allows sexual harassment against its female soldiers and conceals wrong-doings behind the closed doors.
The movie shows a family’s fight against the army, which was a huge hurdle for them in real life. Ultimately, the Biden administration passed a law that makes it mandatory for army higher-ups to be accountable for happenings within the army fold, especially about murders, rapes, and sexual harassment. Christy Wegener directed this movie.
In reality, it is an immensely noteworthy achievement of a family who stepped up to be counted when the odds were remarkably against them. The family sacrificed their fear and grief and fought against the US army for justice.
On the part of the army, they underestimated the power of the “people’s voice.” The actual incident was when Vanessa Guillen (20), an accomplished sports girl of her school, signed up for the army and was posted in a Texas base. The young girl was sexually harassed by her colleague, who ultimately murdered her.
