Film: Stonewall at Journey Film Club
The riots at The Stonewall Inn in New York, that erupted in the summer of 1969 after years of police and institutionalised abuse have become synonymous with the gay liberation movement they triggered. Roland Emmerich’s lightweight 2015 film doesn’t really do the movement justice and has many critics, but it’s a diverting two hours and in the relaxed bonhomie of the Journey Film Club will certainly encourage debate.
