Got ‘Milk’?

leave a comment »

Over the last couple of weeks I have been hyping up JCVD pretty much every post. As a result I figured I’d give you all a break and talk about something else. However, I do have to mention it premiers tonight at the Toronto International Film Festival during the Midnight Madness program. I hope you have your tickets cause if not you’re going to be hard pressed to find some.

Anyway… It looks like Sean Penn is on his way to another Oscar nod with his latest film, Milk directed by Gus Van Sant, director of Good Will Hunting. Milk is the story of California’s first openly gay elected official, Harvey Milk, a San Francisco supervisor who was assassinated along with Mayor George Moscone by San Francisco Supervisor Dan White.

As you can see from the trailer this film has a ton of potential. The story itself has already won an Oscar with the documentary The Times of Harvey Milk, and I have no reason to suspect this film will fare any different. While you’re waiting for this film to be released you should check out the Out There contest on Super U for films by and about the gay, lesbian, bi-sexual, and transgender community. We already have some great films entered and are still accepting submissions, so get out your camera and make your own Milk!
