Campaign against this movie nauseating

First off, I am gay. I was mercilessly bullied as a child back in the late 70's early 80s. It's nothing new.

I have read books, articles, and seen documentaries on the Stonewall riots......having said that, the LGBT community's lynch campaign regarding the film Stonewall has once again proved that as a group we are so self indulgent and petty, so mired in our own little dramas that we cannot see the big picture.

We should have lined up by the thousands to see this film (so starved we are about representation of our history, especially since integration) good or bad, accurate as we would want it to be or not. Instead what we have done is gleefully, shrilly and self-righteously and most of all in the most ignorant of ways, we have torpedoed it. What we have also done is send Hollywood a message that we as a group do not want to see movies about our history because we are so focused on being divisive as a group, and so intent into looking out for our own self as opposed to our collective well being.

We always have been selfish, petty, vain, superficial...in the 70s right after Stonewall, the athletic muscle boys scoffed and ridiculed the political queens because they were too busy being liberated and getting laid.

Black America stands together and supports each other....Tyler Perry can crank out countless drivel with his Medea movies and that demographic will flock. Any instance of police brutality towards an African American and that community ,rightly so, will make their voices heard.

For us that is not the case. Countless gay bashings and no one ever riots in the streets.

Two films have been made about the single most important event in our history. One in the 1990's and this last one. And what is our reaction? To squash any chance for some kid in the mid west to see it and have a spark of interest set off to get him or her and everything in between to go read up on the actual event.

POSSIBLE SPOILER: The film is not bad, it's not great, the script is a little weak, but everyone is represented. Martha P. has her moment in the limelight. A Hispanic character very much resembling Sylvia Rivera comes very close to throwing that first brick. And the lesbian dragged out kicking and screaming that howls anguishedly "Why are you just standing there, why doesn't anyone help me?!" is featured prominently.

So there's a white kid from the Midwest that provides the narrative for the story.

Big deal. One thing for sure, this could have been a chance to provide awareness of this event, and like self righteous idiots we have screwed this one up. You can be sure now that Hollywood will steer clear of anything dealing with LGBT issues. Good luck making that movie on whatever fluid sexuality topic now. We've killed it. A round of applause.

I expected to hate it, but I loved it

Having read so many hostile reviews about this film I expected it to be horrible and historically inaccurate. One reviewer asked "Where was Marilyn P. Johnson?!?" So I expected the worst. But the movie started and BAM! There was Marilyn P. Johnson, Big as you please. So I quickly saw that some negative reviews are by people who didn't see the movie. I believe that making a handsome white guy the main character of the film is what is making some people angry. The film is full of black, transgender and lesbian characters, except for the Mafia & Police, who were all white then and they are all white in the film. Having read some good books on Stonewall, I'd have to say the film depicts the Stonewall riots in a very accurate way. Practically none of the accusations I have read in hostile reviews are justified. I hope everyone sees this movie. There is one scene in which one main character (who is not white or cisgender) pours out her heart because nobody wants her. It is a very powerful scene which everyone needs to see.

A must-see for a number of reasons

Excellent overview of what happened in NYC's Greenwich Village in 1969 when the Gay Rights Movement was given a spark thanks to Stonewall Inn patrons who refused to be abused by the oppressive thug cops one more time.

Jeremy Irvine is superb as the kid from Indiana, who's thrown out of his middle-class home for being gay. He learns what he needs to learn in order to survive on the streets in Manhattan. He connects with a group of drag queens and hustlers who are usually without money, and he also gets a view of the beginnings of the Gay Pride movement thanks to Jonathan Rhys Meyers, terrific as Trevor the Mattichine Society activist.

The movie hasn't opened and far too many comments here are from people who obviously haven't seen the film, which is a crime against art. I have seen the movie, and it works well on many levels, including as an expose of corrupt cops, an examination of the Mafia's control of gay bars, and the nature of homophobia and the closet in America.

People who are whining that the movie ignores this group or that group have no idea what's in the outstanding film, a work of complexity that dares to reveal the truth about brutish law enforcement and how the longing for love will conquer all manner of oppressive forces.

See "Stonewall" and judge for yourself.
