  • The film gracefully telescopes a lot of information in its brief running time. show more

  • For an event of such seismic social importance in the modern era, the 1969 Stonewall riots went shockingly undocumented. Almost no archival footage exists, which gives Kate Davis and David Heilbroner's documentary feature Stonewall Uprising the frustrating air of an oral history lesson. But it's a vitally important one nonetheless. show more

  • An evocative overview of anti-gay hysteria in the 1960s, a period when homosexuality was illegal in every state except Illinois. show more

    "Depressing" is the only word to discrive this movie. The is one thing is taking one's right's away, having rights, and "Special" rights. If you are gay or sright, you will leave with an impty feeling towards sociaty in which we live in. You will have to feel sorry as much for the gays in the 50s and 60s and the blacks at that time. I got my money back. Go see Joan Rivers. You will walk at happy.

    A story well-told, important and interesting; an important turning-point in history and civil rights. Thank you to all the people (gay and straight) who eventually said "enough is enough" and who paved a path for the rest of us.
