Milk

Enthralling.

Sean Penn's performance is incredible. He completely inhabits Harvey Milk.

Even though you're aware of the destination (in fact, the movie spells it out in its first moments), you are swept along the journey.

The intermittent narration by Penn is an effective device to bring you even further into the motivations of this unlikely leader.

Love it too, but was wondering, I thought we were pretty hip in HS, (1978), I don't remember this incident, just the Anita Briant stuff, which I hated...Just made me think how out of touch I really was.
