Will and I saw the new film "Milk" this weekend. I must say that I highly recommend this film to anyone who enjoys movies, is interested in the gay rights cause or appreciates fabulous acting (all three apply to me). I was so impressed by all of the actors in the film and am blown away by how diverse and talented Sean Penn, Emile Hirsch, Diego Luna, James Franco and Josh Brolin are (Oscars?? I hope so!). The rest of the cast are also great.
I found the Californian gay communities fight against Proposition 6 (as featured in "Milk") so similar to the recent fight against Proposition 8. Now I do not intend this blog to be political but I must say that I am horrified by the fact that gay citizens in the US are treated with such prejudice in this day and age. So, see the film and hope that one day America will respect and not fear it's gay citizens. ~Jill
