Stonewall trailer

Last year, the Best Picture nominated drama Selma chronicled a pivotal turn in the Civil Rights Movement of the 1950s and 1960s, when the black citizens of the United States were struggling for basic rights and equality. This year we’ll see the start of the modern Gay Rights Movement in the drama Stonewall, and the first trailer has just arrived.

Independence Day and 2012 director Roland Emmerich takes a break from big sci-fi action to tell this true story of a community of young gays, lesbians and drag queens who begin a riot at the Stonewall Inn in New York City in an effort to begin a more active fight for their own rights and acceptance.
