In San Francisco in the late 1970s, Harvey Milk, the first openly gay man ever elected to public office, becomes an activist for gay rights and inspires others to join him in his fight for equal rights that should be available to all Americans.

“That power lies in its uncanny balancing of nuance and scale, its ability to be about nearly everything – love, death, politics, sex, modernity – without losing sight of the intimate particulars of its story. Harvey Milk was an intriguing, inspiring figure. “Milk” is a marvel.” ~ A.O. Scott, New York Times
