Milk
Gus Van Sant's Bio-Pic on Gay Activist Harvey Milk's Rise and Fall
Fri & Sat April 3 & 4
2009, 7:00 & 9:30

In 1978, Harvey Milk, portrayed here expansively and joyfully by Sean Penn in Gus Van Sant's historically accurate feature, was a former Goldwater conservative-turned-activist who had grasped early the potential political clout of the gay community and was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. With his abilities to reinvent himself, to put straights at ease, and to convince gays to uncloset themselves and join his political cause, Milk seemed destined for the title of mayor. During one board meeting, however, Dan White, a conservative fellow Supervisor, shot and killed Milk and Mayor George Moscone. Van Sant gets impressive performances from his actors, and seamlessly works into his film archival footage that recalls Milk's early years on the political scene as well as moments in the history of the gay rights movement both infamous and inspiring. Also stars James Brolin, Emile Hirsch, James Franco, Alison Pill, Diego Luna.
