Wondering why times are missing?

Milk

There is an inevitability to the tragedy of this 2008 biopic about slain gay rights activist Harvey Milk, but the film never wallows in the downbeat. Instead, director Gus Van Sant gently celebrates the spirit of this indefatigable hero. Sean Penn gives an extremely lived-in performance as the humble politician who stepped up and delivered a message of hope when troubled times demanded. 128 minutes R.
