i saw "milk" tonight.
i found it incredibly moving, and uplifting. and i think sean penn proved more than deserving of the accolades, and the oscar.
the most startling and unexpected reaction i had was to a particular shot of mary ann white, supervisor dan white's wife (played by hope tuck.) supervisor white (josh brolin) is being interviewed by the local news, and his wife is standing directly behind him, nodding and watching. i recognized that face, knowing and secure in it's bigotry and discrimination, from experiences in my own life. nodding and watching. and it made me terribly, terribly sad.
