Stonewall is the focal point of a new feature length drama coming to theaters this September.

The film—directed by Roland Emmerich—follows a (fictional) man "caught up during the 1969 Stonewall Riots" after finding himself in New York following a family fallout. Danny Winters (Jeremy Irvine) is homeless and destitute in Greenwich Village when "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."

The film also stars Ron Perlman, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, and Joey King; it comes out September 25th. Sadly, it was not filmed here in New York,... but we have to say, Montreal seems to make for a really gorgeous, sun-soaked 1960s New York:
