My Date With Sean Penn

Yesterday, I took myself on a date to a movie. I love seeing movies alone, hitting the book store before the show, getting a latte. It's mama decadence. I didn't have to answer to nobody, man!

MILK was an incredibly heartbreaking and beautiful film about Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected government official. Sean Penn was brilliant, as was the entire cast. And whether you're open or not to gay issues, this was just a beautiful film, - a story about a man who wanted to make the world a better place. Bring tissues. I was holding back the big sobs.

I just saw a short little preview about this film, and put it on my Must-See list! Unfortunately, movies here are a good six months behind the States, so who knows when I'll actually get to see it.

Happy New Year!

I want to see Milk - I actually had the chance last week but saw "Slumdog Millionaire" instead, which was very good, I would highly recommend it! Glad you got a night out to yourself!

Slumdog is on my list too, but FD is coming with me for that one!

Interesting how our lives seem to parallel each other! I am currently visiting the city that is swearing in the first openly gay man for mayor. Just read a big article in the local paper about it yesterday. Harvey Milk was mentioned several times in the article. Thanks for bringing this to my attention...I will have to see it...and bring tissues.
