Milk (Gus Van Sant, 2008) will be screened on Thursday 4th February 2010 in the Studio Theatre. The film is a 15 certificate.
As the emerging Gay Pride movement gathers force in the 1970s, it finds a champion and a public face in San Francisco camera store owner Harvey Milk (Sean Penn). Leaving his closeted life in New York behind, Milk moves to California with his lover and soon turns his efforts to politics, campaigning for a spot on the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, a quest that will make him the country’s first openly gay man to be elected to public office. The film won Oscars® for Best Actor, Sean Penn, and Best Original Screenplay, Dustin Lance Black.
In celebration of Diversity Week at Edge Hill University.
