53. Milk

53. Milk

Milk is a white liquid produced by the mammary glands of animals.  Oh wait, damned Wikipedia brought up the wrong milk!  Milk is the true story of Harvey Milk, the first openly gay person elected to public office in California who was assassinated in 1978.

What Tierna thinks: “The story follows a successful, openly gay politician who lives what becomes a pretty tragic and lonely life. Yet, he’s someone a lot of people live up to. It’s not a groundbreaking film but it’s a good watch. I’ll give this one a seven out of ten.”

What Tom thinks: “Yeah pretty good film this.  Have to say I’m not overly familiar with 1970s San Francisco politics so I didn’t really know what was going to happen… certainly the end was a surprise and I couldn’t believe it was true until I read the actual story online.  Too much sugar indeed!  I’ll also give it a seven out of ten.”
