  • Stonewall - From The People Who Brought You Independence Day!

    Seems like an odd choice for Roland Emmerich but here it is...

    "STONEWALL is a drama about a fictional young man caught up during the 1969 Stonewall Riots. Danny Winters (Jeremy Irvine) is forced to leave behind friends and loved ones when he is kicked out of his parent's home and flees to New York. Alone in Greenwich Village, homeless and destitute, he befriends a group of street kids who soon introduce him to the local watering hole The Stonewall Inn; however, this shady, mafia-run club is far from a safe-haven. As Danny and his friends experience discrimination, endure atrocities and are repeatedly harassed by the police, we see a rage begin to build. This emotion runs through Danny and the entire community of young gays, lesbians and drag queens who populate the Stonewall Inn and erupts in a storm of anger. With the toss of a single brick, a riot ensues and a crusade for equality is born."

    Rock! Shock! Pop!

    Not that odd a choice since Roland Emmerich is gay.

      I didn't know that. Still, given his track record this is a pretty big change in style for him.

        Yeah, the style change is striking...I'm picturing the trailer for this film showing a giant alien ship hovering over a stonewall and then destroying it with a big ass death beam.

              Press release for the DVD (looks like no Blu-ray).

              Based on true events, the moving and powerful Stonewall arrives on Digital HD January 5 and DVD (plus Digital) and On Demand on January 19 from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Featuring a star-studded cast including Jeremy Irvine (War Horse), Jonny Beauchamp (TV's "Penny Dreadful"), Joey King (Crazy, Stupid, Love.), Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men: First Class)and Matt Craven (X-Men: First Class), with Jonathan Rhys Meyers (TV's "The Tudors") and Golden Globe®winner Ron Perlman (Best Actor in a Television Series Drama, Beauty and the Beast, 1989), Stonewall is based on the events leading up to the 1969 riots at the Stonewall Inn in New York City. The stirring film tells an incredible narrative through the perspective of Danny Winters (Irvine), who befriends a group of LGBT youth that ignite a crusade for equality. Directed and produced by Roland Emmerich (director of the Independence Day franchise), and written by Jon Robin Baitz, the Stonewall DVD will be available for the suggested retail price of $19.98.

              Passions and politics make a volatile mix in this dynamic drama directed by Roland Emmerich (Independence Day) that follows the groundbreaking events that led to the birth of the modern Gay Rights movement in 1969 at New York City's Stonewall Inn.
