The tense drama The General's Daughter is filled with an all star cast led by John Travolta and Madeleine Stowe. The film also stars Oscar winner Timothy Hutton and Oscar nominees James Cromwell and James Woods. British director Simon West directs this taut thriller. Leslie Stefanson rounds out the cast, playing the role of the general's daughter.

Travolta plays Officer Paul Brenner, an Army detective brought in to investigate a brutal rape and murder of a high ranking general's daughter at West Point. The victim is also a captain in the military. Brenner is partnered with his ex-lover, Officer Sara Sunhill, played by Stowe. Together, they discover the hidden truths and multiple lies inflicted by the military to cover up the violent crime.

Along the way, Brenner and Sunhill learn that the victim herself was engaged in very risque sexual behavior that made her deserving of violence in the eyes of the military.

At the heart of the film is a story about corruption and sexual misconduct in the military, and how even the general himself is hiding things at the expense of finding vindication for his own murdered daughter. It is no surprise that the military refused to endorse The General's Daughter.
