Looking deeper into gay-rights icon Harvey Milk, played by Sean Penn, and the last eight years of his life through a series of 'Milk' clips.
In anticipation of "Milk" limited release in late November, Focus Features have brought forward a series of clips. Exposing many fresh footage from the biopic movie about the gay-rights icon Harvey Milk who was tragically murdered a year after he was elected to public office, the snippets present cut-out scenes from Harvey's 48th birthday celebration to the time he brings Anne Kronenberg to his campaign team.
Highlighting on tagline "His life changed history, his courage changed lives", "Milk" chronicles the last eight years on the life of Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man to be voted into public office in America. Teaming up talented actors that include Sean Penn, James Franco, Josh Brolin, Emile Hirsch and Diego Luna, it focuses on the later life, political career, and assassination of the San Francisco city supervisor and gay rights activist.
This biopic drama comes from the Academy Award-nominated director Gus Van Sant. One of two films about Milk, the flick is written by Dustin Lance Black and produced by Dan Jinks, Bruce Cohen and Michael London. It is due to be released in limited U.S. theaters on November 26.
