The story of Harvey Milk, and his struggles as an American gay activist who fought for gay rights and became California's first openly gay elected official.
Josh Brolin doesn't even appear until 45 minutes into the movie.
Okay. First order of business to come out of this office is the city-wide gay rights ordinance, just like the one that Anita shot down in Dade County. What do you think, Lotus Blossom?
Michael Wong: I think it's good. It's not great.
Harvey Milk: Okay, so make it brilliant. ...
When the mayor is about to sign the ordinance, the pen is in his left hand, signaling that he's left-handed. However, the camera then cuts to a close-up to the Mayor signing the bill with his right hand. The close-up is an insert filmed with a right-handed actor.
