Default I can't wait to see the Harvey Milk movie!

Here's the trailer if anyone's interested. I don't think a trailer has ever made me cry before:

I am looking forward to it, too!

I haven't read his biography by Randy Shilts, who also wrote And the Band Played On, which I think is one of the most brilliant, fascinating books I have ever read.

Annnnnnnnd...quotes one of my favorite guys in the world is quoted

Cheyenne Jackson, the hunky male star of Broadway shows "Xanadu" and "All Shook Up," has acknowledged that since coming out of the closet, he's unlikely to get leading man roles, though he has gotten a cameo on the NBC drama "Lipstick Jungle" and a small role in the film "United 93."
"To be frank, I think I've missed out on big parts because I'm open," he told The Advocate in April. "I've screen-tested on some really big projects, and you can't tell me that behind closed doors big execs aren't like, 'We have Dean Cain or this gay guy who played Elvis on Broadway.' I'm not that naive to think that that doesn't play into it."

I just watched a documentary on this last weekend, they aired it on the anniversary of his death. So interesting and such a waste of an amazing life. I don't know if I will go see the movie, it's not really my kind of movie, but I will watch it on HBO.

So that's what it was! When I lived in SF, I lived near the courthouse and one day the streets were blocked off and there were all these old cars and big trailers and the people milling about said, "it's the new Sean Penn movie."

Neat! It looks good, but I'll have to see it also because I saw part of the filming

Ursula, did you see the movie yet?

It's playing at a few theatres in the city, but I have too much holiday stuff going on to get to the movies. Hopefully soon.

No, I haven't seen it yet! I've been swamped with work and probably won't get to see it until January.

I just saw this tonight. All I can say is that it was a powerful movie. The kind of movie where nobody wanted to move once the ending credits started to roll.

Two thumbs up.

I finally saw it. ITA with afrosheenqueen--it was very powerful. I didn't cry until the last few minutes, but it was the kind of crying jag that I couldn't stop, and I could hear almost everyone around me sniffling. When the credits rolled, people were clapping!

It was a little heavy-handed at times, though. One scene from the beginning of the movie was replayed at the end because it was supposed to be so foreboding. I didn't like that the director didn't trust us to remember it, and there were a few moments like that when I felt like the director was leading his audience too much.

I think the original documentary was more powerful, but it is an important movie, and I'm glad it got a widespread release. Sean Penn is very good!

That aspect annoyed me.

Finally watched it today...I thought it was fantastic, and Sean Penn was wonderful and well-deserved that Oscar! The entire cast was great. It made me want to read more about him. I loved the end credits when they showed the actual people.

He had an incredible spirit...so sad.

CIBC, It's so sad that it's the reality of it, isn't it?
