Goofs

The movie portrays Danny Winters as the person who threw the first brick that started the Stonewall Riot, when, in actuality, it MUST have been somebody else, as Danny Winters is a fictional character, so it is impossible for him to have been the person who threw the first brick, because he did not exist.

See the 1997 version.
27 June 2016 | by bimbowesSee all my reviews

The film is derivative, as well as whitewashed.

There are so many factual goofs, when it comes to clothes, music, etc. The filmmaker needed to spend some time doing research and fact checking.

I also find fault with the film centering around a kid from Kansas. The uprising was started by Puerto Rican and African American drag queens, and there is strong support that the first police resistance was by a lesbian, not some white football player from the mid-west.

I suggest watching the British 1997 film, which really feels so much more authentic.
