Movie: Milk

Sean Penn is excellent as Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man elected to a major political office. The depiction of 1970's activism rang true. Milk realized the political importance of coming out as a way to rally heterosexuals to support the civil rights of gays. Once heterosexuals realize that they know and like gay people, they are less willing to tolerate discrimination against them.

My rating: **** (out of 5)
