Milk (Drama 2008)

Wow, definitely a good movie here. While watching it I kept on thinking to myself that Sean Penn's acting skills were as good as Forest Whitaker from The Last King of Scotland. Funny how I looked it up on IMDB that Sean Penn had won an Oscar for this one. Yeah...I wasn't really paying much attention this last year.

Anyway, the movie was great...terrific acting and pretty humorous make-out scenes coming from straight guys. Yeah I didn't think Franco had it in him but he didn't seem to be phased in the slightest.

The story was all new to me. I know nothing about gays during that period of time, but everything went as expected. Tolerance has sure come a long way since then.

There wasn't really anything bad with this film. I mean constantly watching dudes make out with each other wasn't a highlight, but I guess it was needed to get the whole atmosphere and plot going. Very solid film though.
Rating - A
