Trailer Watch: Penny Dreadful's Jonny Beauchamp Stars in STONEWALL

Just when I was mourning the loss of Jonny Beauchamp's character on Penny Dreadful, I see that the actor is headlining what could become a star-making film for him. STONEWALL, a fictional drama inspired by the true story of what became a landmark moment in LGBTQ rights in America, actually looks really decent.

The actor stars alongside Ron Perlman and Jonathan Rhys Meyers as one of several lead characters in the Roland-Emmerich-directed film who help launch the movement for gay rights. Read the full synopsis:

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.

Watch the trailer:

STONEWALL opens in theaters September 25.
