    The film's final words are simple and to the point, and come from the retired cop, Seymour Pine: "You knew they broke the law, but what kind of law was that?" show more

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

    Many witnesses offer emotional recollections of the ensuing riots, but equally powerful moments come courtesy of old footage, in which anti-gay "experts" expound with a confident ignorance that sounds chillingly familiar even today. 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.
