I just got home from watching MILK, the biopic about Harvey Milk, the first openly gay elected official in the US to a major political office (city supervisor of San Francisco). It was a moving performance from all the actors. Sean Penn was terrific as Harvey Milk - I actually thought I was watching Harvey in many moments. The movie itself was shot largely on film (some video), in many cases in very grainy film to give the feel of a 1970's home made 8mm film. For the classic camera buffs, early in the movie there is an extended sequence where Harvey is wandering around the Castro district with a Nikon rangefinder. Classic camera hardware puts in appearances throughout the film, with lots of Pentax Spotmatics on display.
