Milk - Sean Penn does a decent job playing an overtly camp homosexual and gay rights leader/politician. I read about this guy years ago before I moved to California along with better known CA politicians Gerry Brown and Ronald Reagan. I was hoping to get an insight into his childhood, early life and actual events leading up to his death, but the movie starts when he's 40 and is mostly about his gay rights movement and political activism. Josh Brolin ( No country for old men) was sadly underused in a minor role as Dan White. It would have been nice to explore his character and background more too.

Nice intergration of documentary footage from the actual times and places is interlaced with movie cinematography.

Not bad but could have been better with a deeper exploration of the characters involved 6.5/10
