His life changed history, his courage changed lives. Harvey Milk is a middle-aged New Yorker who, after moving to San Francisco, becomes a Gay Rights activist and city politician. On his third attempt, he is elected to San Francisco's Board of Supervisors in 1977, the first openly-gay man to be elected to public office in the United States. The following year, both he and the city's mayor, George Moscone, are shot to death by former city supervisor, Dan White, who blames his former colleagues for denying White's attempt to rescind his resignation from the board. Based on the true story of Harvey Milk.

DVD, region 1, anamorphic widescreen (1.85:1) presentation; Dolby Digital 5.1 surround, dual-layer, NTSC.

it speaks to activism the movie on scale is only hampered in protest scenes the mix sexuality of politics is very scatter brained on film as well a problem the reality of subject! You've feeling something underneath milk is deeply troubling or troubled! Little done to capture that! As he'd have wished an documentary footage would have posed! It's a party affair careful attention paid the negroid amongst an cast however the honest portrait! It's exclusively caucasoid, or europoid males locked in a human rights fight! Only to spontaneously combust! Penn for his part is paint by numbers more than capable, it's perhaps in, god bless the dead! A personal tale littered suicide, insistent a vernacular, leading some place unknown, but promised! Technically superior in the visual tips given through use of preexisting documentary footage combined high definition a film that does more than it's part advance independent movement! While of course nominated for being through industry affair it's ultimately the weight of movie to be watched! An academy award for cause movie: failing; not highlight, but prove point!
