Buffalo Soldiers

Sept. 6
By Beth Accomando and Cinema Junkie by Beth Accomando

But then top sergeant Robert Lee (Scott Glenn) arrives and lays down some new laws. He intends to clean up the base and he immediately pegs Elwood as a source of the problem. Elwood thinks he can simply "work a deal" with Lee but he underestimates his new opponent. When Elwood finally realizes that Lee won't play along, he decides to take a different tact-he throws down the gauntlet and seduces Lee's rebellious daughter Robyn (Anna Paquin). The two men are now heading for a showdown that's more serious than Elwood anticipated. The situation grows more complicated when Elwood decides to sell $5 million in stolen arms to a Turkish drug dealer and then discovers that he really loves Lee's daughter.
