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 »

Flawed but not the horrible film I expected based on all the ranting
9 January 2016 | by kingwyattSee all my reviews

I watched Stonewall last night and did not find it to be the horrible film I expected. It was not a great film either, a solid 6 out of ten. It was visually interesting, the dialog was a bit awkward and a little boring but IMO it accurately portrayed the feeling of 1969/70. Most of the characters were poor LGBT runaways living on the streets who were POC, transgender, dykes/lesbians and a variety of ethnicities. All the cops were white, mostly portrayed as assholes. Was the movie flawed? Absolutely. Perhaps the biggest flaw was calling the film Stonewall. Still I think it is worth seeing. If you can get past expectations of it being a historically correct documentary and watch it as a coming of age/out story about a young man from the country running to the city (which many did), at the end you can get a real reminder why we celebrate LGBT Pride today.
