Milk

Yesterday I saw Milk, a film about the political and personal life of Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man to be elected to public office in California.

The film does something that is so difficult to achieve in writing, acting - anything mimicking or reflecting upon what makes us human, about what we as humans aspire to, what we are afraid of, fight for, live through. The characters are believable and never villified or characatured in any way. Sean Penn's performance in the lead role is outstanding. The script was clearly written with passionate interest and respect for it's subject, and I only wish I could construct such a masterful character portrayal!
