Tomorrow, on November 26th, Focus Features will release Milk at select theaters throughout the country. The film will expand to more theaters throughout the month of December.
Milk is the inspiring and epic story of Harvey Milk. Harvey Milk was one of the pioneer's of the LGBT movement in the United States. California's first openly gay elected official, Harvey Milk served as a San Francisco Supervisor. He was assassinated along with Mayor George Moscone by Supervisor Dan White. The film is directed by Gus Van Sant and stars Sean Penn, Emile Hirsch, Josh Brolin, Diego Luna and James Franco.
Milk is already receiving rave reviews: “It’s a total triumph! Brimming with humor and heart. If there’s a better movie around this year, with more bristling purpose, I sure haven’t seen it. An American classic!" says Peter Travers of Rolling Stone.
