Goofs

During Danny's first visit to the Stonewall, a few months prior to the June 1969 riots, the song "Venus" by Shocking Blue is played on the bar's jukebox. The song wasn't released until October of 1969 and wasn't a major hit until 1970, well after the events of the film. Similarly, the song "I'll Take You There" by the Staple Singers, is featured twice on the soundtrack, once as as diegetic music and once as non-diegetic. That song wasn't released until 1972, again well after the events of the film. See more »

I expected to hate it, but I loved it
27 September 2015 | by (Washington DC) – See all my reviews

Having read so many hostile reviews about this film I expected it to be horrible and historically inaccurate. One reviewer asked "Where was Marilyn P. Johnson?!?" So I expected the worst. But the movie started and BAM! There was Marilyn P. Johnson, Big as you please. So I quickly saw that some negative reviews are by people who didn't see the movie. I believe that making a handsome white guy the main character of the film is what is making some people angry. The film is full of black, transgender and lesbian characters, except for the Mafia & Police, who were all white then and they are all white in the film. Having read some good books on Stonewall, I'd have to say the film depicts the Stonewall riots in a very accurate way. Practically none of the accusations I have read in hostile reviews are justified. I hope everyone sees this movie. There is one scene in which one main character (who is not white or cisgender) pours out her heart because nobody wants her. It is a very powerful scene which everyone needs to see.
