'Milk' earning stellar reviews

In light of the passage of Proposition 8 in California this movie has more relevancy. Peter Travers (the best movie reviewer in the nation) calls the movie a classic, and writes in Rolling Stone that Sean Penn gives a transcendent peformance as Harvey Milk, the San Francisco pol who in the 1970s was the firat openly homosexual man elected to office in the nation.

Any word on whether the movie is even coming to Iowa. It's been out two weeks and still nothing that I can find.

Yeah, don't know. My Guess is the Fleur Cinema & Cafe in Des Moines but I wonder if theaters in smaller cities will carry it at all -- for box office and political reasons.
