blog: Milk Doc Writer Praises Milk, the Movie
Posted December 12, 2008
Carter Wilson, the man who co-wrote the Oscar-winning 1984 documentary The Times of Harvey Milk, recently spoke with The Mercury News about Gus Van Sants’ Milk. Wilson admits that many critics have contacted him to trash the fiction film, but that is not how he feels at all. Among his objects of praise is Sean Penn’s performance: "There is playing gay, which all straight actors do from time to time, and there is embodying a character, which is what Penn does here."
