Milk (2008) Academy Award winner Sean Penn takes the title role in Gus Van Sant's biopic tracing the last eight years in the life of Harvey Milk, the ill-fated politician and gay activist whose life changed history, and whose courage still inspires people. When Milk was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1977, he made history for being the first openly gay man in American history to be voted into public office.
- Sean Penn - US actor, screenwriter and film director, 52 years of a very impressive career, (to me) best performance in 21 Grams, very active in political & social issues. One of my favourite actors.
In one of his hotter moments, ciggie aside, I can't decide if Sean Penn of 1995 is trying to be James Dean, Jack Nicholson or Andrew Garfield in this pic. Photos: The 2013 Hollywood Portfolio | Vanity Fair
