Milk, 2008, 128 min

Milk charts the last eight years of Harvey Milk’s life. While living in New York City, Milk and his lover Scott Smith relocate to San Francisco, where they found a small business in the heart of a working-class neighborhood. Milk surprises Scott and himself by becoming an outspoken agent for change by plunging headfirst into the choppy waters of politics. Elected supervisor, he tries to coordinate his efforts with those of another newly elected supervisor but their political agendas increasingly diverge and their personal destinies tragically converge. Milk’s platform was and is one of hope – a hero’s legacy that resonates in the here and now.
cast: Sean Penn, Emile Hirsch, Josh Brolin, Diego Luna, James Franco

Movie Monday screens every Monday in Victoria, B.C. Admission is by donation.
