I’m automatically skeptical of all biopics, Sean Penn vehicles, and post-My Own Private Idaho Gus Van Sant movies. That said, this:
Looks awesome. As frustrating as it’ll be to hear people who’d never so much as heard Harvey’s name before the movie wax knowledgeable about his impact on the gay rights movement, the degree of ignorance among straights about Harvey Milk is really staggering, and I welcome anything to works to counteract that. Also, I love that the movie doesn’t try to make Milk masculine or straight-acting. It’s a great slap in the face to those straights who go on about how they’re fine with gays as long as they don’t “flaunt”.
