Hope Along the Wind: The Life of Harry Hay
 
You might expect the first significant documentary film about the founder of the gay male movement for equality in the United States to be an exercise in hero worship, but this well-crafted documentary reveals almost as much about the flaws that kept Hay from achieving more as it does about the strengths that led to his substantial accomplishments.
