On Your Shopping List: Milk

March 10, 2009
Buy the kind of milk that never expires: Gus Van Sant's award-winning Harvey Milk biopic, Milk! It's in stores on DVD and BLU-RAY HI-DEF and available On Demand (VOD) today! As you recall, Milk has won a slew of awards, most recently, two Oscars: Best Actor -- Sean Penn and Best Original Screenplay -- Dustin Lance Black. For a complete list of awards, please visit our Milk Awards Central resource. Of course, if you want to really show your love for Milk, you can kick it up a notch like activist Tom Gregory did last week: He paid $12,500 for one of the Harvey Milk suits worn by Sean Penn in the film. Proceeds went to benefit Variety: The Children's Charity of Southern California and New York's Hetrick-Martin Institute, home of Harvey Milk High School. Whether it's thousands of dollars for commemorative merchandise, or just $17.99 for the DVD, supporting Milk always does a body good.
