Here's a contrary view
of Sean Penn's starring role in Gus Van Sant's Milk
The upshot of the criticism is that Penn's recent piece
in The Nation
glossed over the history
of Castro (Fidel, of course — not the district in San Francisco) when it comes to gays.
Seems like a stretch to conclude that Penn is no friend to gays because his piece doesn't mention that history. Your thoughts after reading it and watching Penn discuss his cover story.
