“I’ve seen Gus Van Sant‘s Milk (Focus Features, 11.26),” a director-actor friend wrote about 18 hours ago. “It’s really really good. Sean Penn and Emile Hirsch are incredible. It’s romantic and sexy and intimate and totally moving.” I called the guy three times to try and get a little bit more, but no go. (Or not yet.) I was told today that the running time is just over two hours.
