"My name is Harvey Milk and I'm here to recruit you!"

Gus Van Sant's Milk is an incisive and stirring dramatisation of the heroic life and violent death of 1970's gay activist Harvey Milk. Van Sant's magnificent biopic of indelible power is infused with a masterful and vibrant recreation of a tumultuous era that throbs with heart, humour and anguish. This engrossing, multi-layered h... read more

''Without hope, life's not worth living.''

The story of Harvey Milk, and his struggles as an American gay activist who fought for gay rights and became California's first openly gay elected official.

Sean Penn: Harvey Milk

How miraculous it is how crucial timing is. Released only a few weeks after the passage of Proposition 8 - a measure that took away... read more

For me, Milk was easily the best film of last year's Academy Awards run. Slumdog was an overrated Indian version of a Charles Dickens story, and Frost/Nixon and The Reader were inexplicably nominated, in my opinion. Only Benjamin Button and Milk touched me out of the top five, but Button didn't touch me as much as Milk did. Sean Penn smiles! That alone should have gotten him the Oscar nomination. ... read more

Description: Academy Award nominee Gus Van Sant directs Academy Award winner Sean Penn as gay rights icon Harvey Milk. Mr. Milk (1930-1978) was an activist and politician, and the first openly gay man to be elected to public office in America; in 1977, he was voted to the city supervisors’ board of San Francisco. The following year, both he and the city’s mayor George Moscone were shot to death by another city supervisor, Dan White. Mr. Milk was previously the subject of the Academy Award-winning documentary feature “The Times of Harvey Milk,” but “Milk” – filmed on location in San Francisco – is the first non-documentary fea ...

Movies the giraffe watched in 2017: March (55 movies items)

"First viewing - March 13th This wound up being an interesting contrast to The Imitation Game, going from a closeted homosexual to one that's best known for his activism and inspiring homosexuals to leave the closet behind. Both men are inspiring in their own ways and worthy of their stories being passed on & their respective work being celebrated. Again here I liked most of the characters & found plenty to appreciate, while also feeling like I could watch it again at some point but I probably d"

" Cast : Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, James Franco, Emile Hirsch, Diego Luna, Alison Pill What was it about? The story of Harvey Milk, and his struggles as an American gay activist who fought for gay rights and became California's first openly gay elected official. My two cents: To be honest, before watching this movie, I had heard about Harvey Milk but I have to admit that I didn’t know much about the guy so, only for this, it was already an incredibly valuable picture that allowed me to get "
