The actress Ellen Page will play the role of a lesbian again in her new film «Lioness».

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Martz was sent to Afghanistan as a leader of a Female Engagement Team and tasked with the dual mandate of gaining the trust of Afghan women by equipping them with necessary skills for independence but also secretly extracting information from them about their Taliban husbands.

The soldier, who now lives in San Diego, was waging a personal war on several fronts. She was hiding the fact that was she was a gay woman in the military and on top of that found herself torn between the desire to prove herself to her superiors and the allegiance she developed toward the women and children whose strength and courage she grew to admire
