Newmarket Press (
In 1977, Harvey Milk was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, becoming the first openly gay man to be voted into major public office in America. His victory was not just a victory for gay rights; he forged coalitions across the political spectrum. 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. In Milk, Oscar-winner Sean Penn stars as Harvey Milk under the direction of Oscar-nominee Gus Van Sant, filmed on location in San Francisco, from an original screenplay by Dustin Lance Black. Milk: The Shooting Script includes an exclusive introduction by director Van Sant; the film’s complete shooting script; scene notes by screenwriter Black; an exclusive conversation with Black, Van Sant, and activist Cleve Jones, who was mentored by Harvey Milk; a color photo section; and complete cast and crew credits. — Preview: Troy Carrington
