sundayswim saidAnd Thank You, Dustin Lance Black.
Yes, Sunday, first thanks go to Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen for producing this film, and to the words of Dustin Lance Black. This film has been in limbo for many years for a couple of different reasons. Lance Black found the heart and soul and put it into the script. Sean Penn truly inhabited the role of Harvey Milk.
I think thanks should also go to Craig Zadan and Neil Meron who, for many, many years attempted to produce "The Mayor of Castro Street," based on the book by openly gay journalist Randy Shilts (author of "And the Band Played On"). At one point both projects were going to be made, then "Mayor of Castro Street" folded for probably the last time.
Either way, I'm glad Harvey Milk's story was finally told and told well.
