Movie Review:


Milk


Rating: Molten


I worked in San Francisco when the assassinations of Harvey Milk and George Moscone, so I was very curious as to how they would put this whole movie together. In addition, because of all the whispers of an Oscar-worthy performance for Sean Penn, I decided to see it. The movie accurately captures the mood and the politics of the city (and the country) in the late 1970s concerning gay rights (or lack thereof). Even though I had lived in the city, I actually learned a lot about the history of how the Castro district was shaped, how Harvey Milk worked his way into politics, and the tie-ins with national gay rights initiatives at the time. Sean Penn's performance was indeed Oscar-worthy, and his co-stars were not too shabby either. Well done!
