I SO want to see MILK. Thank you for this great review. Somehow, I think we would have fun in the theater together and think much alike...except you put it so freakin well.
My favorite line you mentioned was in Australia..."Its child actor, Brandon Walters, was sent by the film gods. He plays the story's half-caste boy protagonist, Nullah. He narrates the film in a manner for which only a Scrooge could fail to fall." I took one look at these pictures and was astounded. He is so incredibly beautiful and intense looking in his delicate BIG brown eyed face. Um...I am imagining a small child with big blue eyes that had such an old soul as everyone noted.
hugs you always xoxoxo v

Ah, Nullah and Frodo would have got on like a house a'fire. In fact, when I saw Nullah riding hell for leather across the outback on a horse, just a little guy with his long hair flying, full of intent and purpose, it made me think of Frodo in a horse race in a fanfic I followed for years. Frodo in the fanfic is supposed to be a teenager, but he seems as young, even younger than Nullah, since in the story Frodo is still very immature. Apart from fanfic, though, Frodo, like Nullah in "Australia", is wise beyond his years, even while filled with a youthfulness as vibrant as spring. I think you'll really like Nullah. He's a great character, and the young actor is wonderful playing him. He's got magic.

I read some of the reviews for "Milk". The critics who have reviewed it all seem extremely impressed, especially with the performances.
