Milk (10th Anniversary)

October 27, 2018 @ 7:00 pm

Milk (10th Anniversary)

Winner, Academy Award for Best Actor (Sean Penn) & Best Original Screenplay (Dustin Lance Black) 2009

Dir. Gus Van Sant, USA, 2008, 128 mins

FREE for NewFest Passholders & Annual Members with RSVP; $10 General Admission

This distinctly American tale of grassroots political perseverance won Dustin Lance Black an Oscar for Best Original Screenplay for his well-researched and flinty script, and received nominations for Best Picture and Best Director for queer director Gus Van Sant. Anchored by a towering Academy Award-winning performance by Sean Penn and supported by a dynamic ensemble–which includes Emile Hirsch, Josh Brolin, Alison Pill, and James Franco–MILK boasts the activistic power of a strong community working together to create change and awareness. MILK captures the ebullience and spirit of 70s San Francisco and celebrates the doors opened by the titular icon, California’s first openly gay elected official, as well as the legacy he left behind too soon.

Writer: Dustin Lance Black
Cast: Sean Penn, Emile Hirsch, Josh Brolin, Diego Luna, Alison Pill, Victor Garber, Denis O’Hare, Joseph Cross, James Franco
