Academy Award winner for Best Actor and Best Original Screenplay, Milk arrives on DVD and Blu-ray on March 10th from Universal Studios Home Entertainment for the suggested retail price of $39.98 for Blu-ray and $29.98 for DVD.
Based on the powerful and inspirational true story, Harvey Milk – a true man of the people – was a fighter for human rights and a hero for all Americans.
The film chronicles Milk’s journey as the first openly gay man elected to major public office, and how he went on to inspire hope for equal rights during one of the least tolerant times of our nation’s history.
Oscar winner Sean Penn (Mystic River and Milk) and an all-star cast including Josh Brolin (W, No Country for Old Men), Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild), Diego Luna (Y tu mama tambien) and James Franco (Spiderman trilogy) star in this remarkable and triumphant story of an ordinary man whose life changed history and whose courage changed lives.
The DVD and Blu-ray come with extras that will allow viewers to meet the real-life friends and co-workers who worked with Harvey Milk around the time of his assassination. Extras also include behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast.
