Sean Penn can act...
I haven't seen Milk, the film Sean Penn won the Academy Award for this year, but he gave an amazing performance in The Assassination Of Richard Nixon.
It's based on true events and is absolutely staggering. It chronicles a desparate loser's life spiralling to inevitable disaster. It's heartbreakingly sad, but you can't help but feel for the guy even though he is completely misguided.
Don't watch if you're off your meds or battling depression. It took me three sittings to get through it.
