FC:RTH Sep 18 9:30pm | In brief: Roland Emmerich (Anonymous) directs this drama about the 1969 Stonewall riots in Greenwich Village, which became a milestone in the LGBTQ rights movement in North America.

Ramblings: Pretentious and melodramatic soap opera. Does a disservice to the people who took part in the Stonewall riots and the GLBTQ community. Not recommended viewing for anyone. This is what happens when a director (& possibly writer) who's used to doing films like "Independence Day" tries to do a story that is much more nuanced. He says it's a "personal" film -- but he misspoke -- it's nothing personal at all. Tie up all the loose ends and make all the characters stereotypes.
