Solid biographical drama about San Francisco supervisor and gay rights activist Harvey Milk (a fine Sean Penn), his tumultuous rise to office after three failed runs for city and state office, and his 1978 assassination by deranged fellow supervisor Dan White (Josh Brolin). Director Gus Van Sant brings an almost cinema verite style to the docudrama, while the strong cast includes James Franco, Emile Hirsch, Alison Pill, Victor Garber and Denis O'Hare. Brief scenes of homosexual activity including male kissing and nongraphic encounters, rear male nudity, murder, suicide, some rough language, crude expressions and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is L—limited adult audience, films whose problematic content many adults would find troubling. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R—restricted; under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
