Saw the movie Milk

Saturday night I saw the movie Milk. It was well done and I recommend it. The movie worked well in covering not only the personal life and history of Harvey Milk but also touched on some of the context issues related to San Francisco and also the rest of USA. At the end of the movie I noticed that most people sat in their seats watching the credits. As a straight white male in his 50s I found the movie very engaging even though I had just moved to San Jose a few months before Milk and Moscone were murdered so the events were prominent in the local news and thus I already knew quite a bit about what had happened. There were several things that I either did not know or had forgotten such as the role that the Coors beer boycott played.
