As in the movie about Harvey Milk.  I think it looks really good, and have heard Sean Penn really embodies the role well.

Here's the trailer:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unu-9vM9VZw

I think it opens next week.

Ok, that trailer gave me goosebumps!  I'm impressed with Sean Penn taking on this role.  I'm looking forward to seeing this movie, but we will probably wait until it comes out on DVD.

Oh heck yeah! I embarrass my boyfriend everytime we go to a movie and see the trailer because I always clap and say "Bravo!" afterwards.

I'm organizing an outing for OUTLaw (our gay rights group at school) to go see it post-exams.  I'm really really excited.

Because that's Harvey Milk's last name?

I just saw Milk. Sean Penn is brilliant and it's a beautiful film.  See it. You'll laugh, you'll be outraged, you'll be sad -- and you'll be proud.

I'l probably wait until I can watch it at home.  I know it will make me cry.  He was an amazing man.

Yep, I'm planning to see it. We're taking a field trip with friends from church, sometime before Christmas. (We have to go to another town to see it (60 or 90 minutes away, depending on where we go), b/c it prolly won't be carried here. sigh) I'm psyched!

The  reviews are incredible and although I'm not a big Penn fan, it looks like he did an amazing job. :)  Hope to get to see it next week.  We are still snowed in here...

Yes he did a GREAT job!  My parents and brother went to see it on Christmas and loved it as well.
