Set in 1970s San Francisco, Milk is an inspiring biopic of Harvey Milk, the first openly gay politician to be elected in America. The film shows the shocking prejudice encountered by Milk and those who campaigned alongside him in their fight for equality. Acclaimed director Gus Van Sant creates a fascinating portrait of Milk's political and personal world, brought to life by a fantastic lead performance from Sean Penn, who deservedly won 2009's Best Actor Oscar for the role.
