In 1972, John Wojtowicz tried to rob a Brooklyn bank to finance his lover’s sex change. The heist turned into a 14-hour hostage situation; the media frenzy made him a star, and Al Pacino later played him in Dog Day Afternoon. Featuring extraordinary footage of the robbery, period interviews and the early gay rights movement, this is the true story of a larger-than-life New Yorker: soldier, activist, mama’s boy, bank robber.

NR, 100 Minutes

"The real story behind DOG DAY AFTERNOON is even wilder."
