"What makes [Harvey Milk] remarkable was that even though he was in so many respects so flawed and so ordinary and so beset by all the everyday challenges of life that we all face, he did in fact change the world, and he did that by being honest, by being courageous, and by never, ever giving up. I think that really, really comes through in the film." -Consultant/Activist Cleve Jones, from the book
