Friday, May 22nd would have been Harvey Milk's 90th birthday. In 1977, Harvey Milk was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, becoming the first openly gay man to be voted into public office in America. His victory was not just a victory for gay rights; he forged coalitions across the political spectrum. From senior citizens to union workers, Harvey Milk changed the very nature of what it means to be a fighter for human rights and became, before his untimely death in 1978, a hero for all Americans. Our next Rialto Recommends is 2008's Academy Award winner MILK which took home Oscars for Sean Penn's fantastic portrayal of Harvey Milk and Dustin Lance Black's superb screenplay. Directed by Gus Van Sant MILK received this rave from the Washington Post: "Once in a while, a movie arrives at such a perfect moment, its message and meaning so finely tuned to the current zeitgeist, that it seems less a cinematic event than a cosmic convergence, willed into being by a once-in-a-lifetime alignment of the stars." While the Denver Post raved "At the heart of this eloquent portrait of a cultural catalyst is Penn's profoundly human, and possibly finest, performance." Check-out MILK currently streaming on STARZ and available for a modest rental feel from RedBox, Youtube, Google Play, Apple, FandangoNow, and Vudu HERE.
