Oh.
My.
Gods!

Tears are running down my face!

I cannot believe how much Penn looks like Milk.

I cannot believe they are making this movie. (This isn't a joke, is it Mark?)

I'm stunned. Just stunned. Nicely stunned.

November when?????? IMDB says 2008, but this is the first I've heard of this.

You made my day, Mark. Hell, you made my month!!

On Oct. 28 Focus Features expects to introduce its film “Milk,” directed by Gus Van Sant with Sean Penn in the title role, at a gala in San Francisco hosted by local luminaries, at least one of whom — Senator Dianne Feinstein, then the president of the board of supervisors — was just steps away when Mr. Milk and Mayor Moscone were shot. The movie will begin playing in some theaters on Nov. 26, just ahead of the 30th anniversary of the killings on Nov. 27, then gain wider release as the awards season gets under way.

I remember how moved I was when I watched the documentary "The life and times of Harvey Milk" years ago on PBS.
I certainly hope this film plays in the Ithaca area.

I hope so, too! Keep an eye on the Cinemapolis and Fall Creek Pictures listings.

And I will keep a close on on Somerville Theater's listings as well as any buzz in Bay Windows.

The piece composed for the memorial section of the film is among the most beautiful sequence of notes ever written.
