Deflected invitations for Thanksgiving and wasn’t able to drive to see my mother, so I played holiday hooky- ignored dls, went to Sweat, then to see Sean Penn in Milk. A great part for him and he milks it with everything he has. He’ll get the oscar for this one. Operatic in its intensitity and full of the stations of the gay cross. Absolutely loved it. Beautiful performances from Mr. Penn and James Franco who plays Milk’s his first lover Scott. Kept forgetting that Mr. Franco isn’t the reincarnation of another James. Josh Brolin is hypnotic as Dan White, should snag him an oscar nod.
Not holding the tears back at reliving what GLBT America lost when Harvey Milk was gunned down. Harvey’s speeches still resonate today.
