In 1972, Harvey Milk (Sean Penn) and his then-lover Scott Smith leave New York for San Francisco, with Milk determined to accomplish something meaningful in his life. Settling in the Castro District, he opens a camera shop and helps transform the area into a mecca for gays and lesbians. In 1977 he becomes the nation's first openly gay man elected to a notable public office when he wins a seat on the Board of Supervisors. The following year, Dan White (Josh Brolin) kills Milk in cold blood.

Awe Inspiring

The definitive film on the life of Harvey Milk whose story takes on great meaning in today's divided society. The performances are truly outstanding and the film captures 70's San Francisco with a fresh yet realistic perspective that is unprecedented. This film will be nominated for an Academy Award and will win on the strength of the acting and storytelling and the incredible performances of Sean Penn, Josh Brolin, and Palo Alto's own James Franco.
