Harvey Milk

When you get the chance, make sure you take the time to see the new film "Milk" about the rise and subsequent assassination of Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man elected to public office. I think it has only opened in LA and NYC, but once it gets to your locale, do see it. It is a very well-made movie, the acting is superb (not just Sean Penn, but the entire cast) and of course it is as relevant today as it anything, as homosexuals around in California and around the country attempted to finally gain the civil rights that had been denied them. It was both one of the most uplifting and depressing movies I have seen in a long time - a great one for the holidays.
