Movie Review - Milk

I bought a DVD movie when I was on my way home yesterday. I picked Milk because I was interested with how Sean Penn played the role as the gay activist Harvey Milk. Penn was awarded as Best Actor In A Leading Role by the prestigious award giving body - The Oscar's 2008.

After seeing the movie, I could really say that Penn deserved the award! Just like his role as a mentally-handicapped father in I Am Sam, he once again lost himself on this gay character as Harvey Milk.

Milk is a true to life story about a camera storeowner who became the first openly gay man who was elected for a political office in the United States. This movie showed how Milk fought for gay rights and how homosexuals during the 70's fought for equality. Here's a trailer of the movie:

I know this movie isn't that appealing to everybody. It doesn't appeal that much to me either. I have nothing against gay people. I even enjoy their company. But I believe on what the Bible said about God creating just men and women.

Enjoy the rest of the week everyone!!!
