In 1969, patrons of the Stonewall bar in Greenwich Village decided to fight off police bashing, and that began the gay liberation movement. This docudrama recreates that era through the eyes of Matty Dean (Fred Weller). This is an interesting film that provides a contrast as well as a reminder of feelings about homosexuals–then and now.
