Gus Van Sant’s Milk – Los Angeles Premiere

Marisa Tomei, Hilary Swank, Jack Nicholson, Harry Dean Stanton, James Franco, Sean Penn and Josh Brolin attend Director Gus Van Sant’s Milk premiere at Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills, California. The Focus Features biography film – Milk – hits theaters on Wednesday, November 26.

Milk was written and executive produced by Dustin Lance Black, and produced by Michael London, Bruce Cohen and Dan Jinks.

Synopsis of Milk: In 1977, Harvey Milk was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, becoming the first openly gay man to be voted into public office in America. His victory was not just a victory for gay rights; he forged coalitions across the political spectrum. From senior citizens to union workers, Harvey Milk changed the very nature of what it means to be a fighter for human rights and became, before his untimely death in 1978, a hero for all Americans. While living in New York City, he turns 40. Looking for more purpose, Milk and his lover Scott Smith relocate to San Francisco, where they found a small business, Castro Camera, in the heart of a working-class neighborhood. With his beloved Castro neighborhood and beautiful city empowering him, Milk surprises Scott and himself by becoming an outspoken agent for change. With vitalizing support from Scott and from new friends like young activist Cleve Jones, Milk plunges headfirst into the choppy waters of politics. Bolstering his public profile with humor, Milk’s actions speak even louder than his gift-of-gab words. When Milk is elected supervisor for the newly zoned District 5, he tries to coordinate his efforts with those of another newly elected supervisor, Dan White. But as White and Milk’s political agendas increasingly diverge, their personal destinies tragically converge.
