This engrossing, multi-layered h... read more

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.

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.

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 ...

Best Picture Nominees (in Ten Sentences) (478 movies items)

"There have been several films and documentaries about the life of openly gay San Francisco politician Harvey Milk. However, given his counterculturalist views and inception as one of the key figures in the Queer Eye cinema, Gus Van Sant seemed to be the ideal choice to direct the biopic. "Milk" follows the gay rights activist and politician (Sean Penn) from his path to the Board of Supervisors to his quarrel with conservative member of District 7 Dan White (Josh Brolin) to his assassination alon"
