🎬Movie Reviews🎬: “Milk”

“Milk” (S1 E67)

“Milk” is a 2008 American biographical film based on the life of gay rights activist and politician Harvey Milk, who was the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California, as a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Directed by Gus Van Sant and written by Dustin Lance Black, the film stars Sean Penn as Milk and Josh Brolin as Dan White, a city supervisor, and Victor Garber as San Francisco Mayor George Moscone.

Attempts to put Milk’s life to film followed a 1984 documentary of his life and the aftermath of his assassination, titled “The Times of Harvey Milk”, which was loosely based upon Randy Shilts’s biography, The Mayor of Castro Street (the film won the Academy Award for Best Documentary Feature for 1984, and was awarded Special Jury Prize at the first Sundance Film Festival, among other awards). Various scripts were considered in the early 1990s, but projects fell through for different reasons, until 2007. Much of “Milk” was filmed on Castro Street and other locations in San Francisco, including Milk’s former storefront, Castro Camera.

The film was released to much acclaim and earned numerous accolades from film critics and guilds for Penn’s performance, Van Sant’s directing, and the screenplay, it received 8 Oscar nominations at the 81st Academy Awards, including Best Picture and went on to win two for Best Actor for Penn, his second Oscar, and Best Original Screenplay for Black.
