About the Book:

Milk screenwriter Dustin Lance Black won the Academy Award for best original screenplay in 2009 for his work on the critically acclaimed biopic of social activist Harvey Milk. This book contains a facsimile of the complete shooting script for Milk. His courage changed lives. In 1977, Harvey Milk was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors, becoming the first openly gay man to be voted into major public office in America. His victory was not just a victory for gay rights; he forged coalitions across the political spectrum. From senior citizens to union workers, Harvey Milk changed the very nature of what it means to be a fighter for human rights and became, before his untimely death in 1978, a hero for all Americans.

Academy Award winner Sean Penn starred as Harvey Milk, with a star-studded cast including Emile Hirsch as Cleve Jones, Josh Brolin as Dan White, Diego Luna as Jack Lira, and James Franco as Scott Smith, under the direction of Academy Award nominee Gus Van Sant, filmed on location in San Francisco, from an original screenplay by Dustin Lance Black.

• Exclusive introduction by director Gus Van Sant
• Complete Shooting Script
• Scene Notes by Dustin Lance Black
• An exclusive conversation with Black, Van Sant, and Cleve Jones, one of the original political activists with Harvey Milk
• Colour photo section
