At the end of the film Milk, the audience applauded. Was it in appreciation of the fine style of film making? Was it for the outstanding acting? Was it for the bravery and passion of Harvey Milk for gay rights? (all human rights for that matter) I hope it was all of the above, it sure was for me.
PS (If you liked Milk, or as homework before you see Milk, see the documentary The Times of Harvey Milk. Such an interesting man.)
