A solid film with clear intentions -- to thoughtfully entertain. If you walk out of Milk and not be moved then you are missing a little soul.

Sean Penn gives a meticulously detailed performance as the cagey and charismatic pol, but credit should also go to Dustin Lance Black, whose script squarely locates Milk at the center of his community, his city, and his cause.

An involving portrait of the courage of one man standing up against hatred and bigotry.

The best film of 2008; engrossing no matter what one's sexual orientation.

February 25, 2009
Penn's comments at the 2008 Oscars might have been needed if it weren't for a previous statement by Dustin Lance Black who sensitively and appealingly, made an acceptance speech in which he spoke very personally about the pain of being gay as a youth.

O mais impressionante é observar como Penn se livra de todos os resquícios de sua própria personalidade e de seus personagens anteriores ao emprestar seu corpo a uma nova criação que em nada lembra suas demais performances.

Algo atípico: buen cine testimonial y militante con la forma de una producción mainstream de Hollywood. Gran trabajo protagónico de Sean Penn.

The film itself can be taken as an act of testimony, mingling archival footage with re-enactments and immediacy with nostalgia.

Sean Penn and gay director Gus Van Sant (Good Will Hunting) have created a warm-hearted testament to Harvey Milk, the first openly gay individual who was elected to major political office, and was then murdered/martyred.

What if Van Sant's movie hit theaters in California a couple of months before Californians said yes to the no-to-gay-marriage Proposition 8 on November 4?

Van Sant has a powerful story to tell, and he tells it with craft, as it was written.

Penn is a revelation as Milk. He's always been a no-holds-barred actor, but this is another departure: his energy drives the story.

Quite simply, Milk is an unmissable film about a man who energised a movement.
