Movie Night: Stonewall

June 8, 2010
6:30 pm
 to 9:30 pm

Join allgo for the movie screening and discussion of

Stonewall
This 1995 historical comedy-drama film was inspired by the memoir of the same title by openly gay historian Martin Duberman, Stonewall is a fictionalized account of the weeks leading up to the Stonewall riots, a seminal event in the modern American gay rights movement. Stonewall was the final film of British film director Nigel Finch, who died of an AIDS-related illness shortly after completing filming.
Stonewall stars Guillermo Díaz, Frederick Weller, Duane Boutte and Brendan Corbalis. Dwight Ewell and Luis Guzmán also make cameos.

After a long history of police raids, extortion, and brutality, a gaggle of drag queens at the Stonewall decide they have had enough and begin to riot when the police try to load them into a paddy wagon. And so began the modern gay liberation movement. Told by “La Miranda” (Hector), a regular customer at the Stonewall Inn, the film is a recounting of events that led up to that fateful day in 1969. “Matty Dean” is the handsome angry young man that La Miranda meets at the Stonewall one day and with whom she/he quickly falls in love. “Bostonia” is the self-styled Queen Mother of the drag queens and guides each initiate gently “into the life.”
