“…And I’m here to recruit you.”

This is a Milk post.

I would like to spend a few minutes of my Spring Break to talk about Gus Van Sant’s Academy Award-winning film, Milk. Milk is a film about the life of Harvey Milk, who is the first openly gay man to take public office. Sean Penn starred as the title character while his co-stars Emile Hirsch, Diego Luna, Josh Brolin and James Franco played real people who were significant in the last few years of Harvey Milk’s life. Although Milk only won two out of its eight Oscar nods, I do believe that this film deserved all its nominations. Milk had an outstanding screenplay which consisted of witty and effective dialogue and a plotline that was so historically and cinematically accurate that I could see the amount of hard work and research that Dustin Lance Black put into the film. The casting was spot-on and each actor playing a major role did so brilliantly. I know that a lot of people thought that Mickey Rourke deserved the Best Actor award, but from what I saw in Milk, Sean Penn deserved every bit of that golden man.

I think that Milk will definitely go down on my list of favourite films of all time. It was perfect.
