You may remember Mr. Peacock’s thoughts on the Gus Van Sant film, Milk, from back in November, but if you missed it, you can read it here. The film has brought a piece of American history, not many people were aware of before, to the mainstream consciousness.
Thank you Sean Penn for giving a gracious and moving acceptance speech at the 81st Academy Awards after winning Best Actor for your portrayal of Harvey Milk.
Mr. Peacock would also like to thank the young screenwriter, Dustin Lance Black, for having the tenacity to pursue and successfully accomplish his dream of bringing Harvey Milk’s legacy to the big screen.
Thank you to all of the people who worked on Milk, and to Harvey Milk himself, for believing in liberty and justice for all! Bravo!
