Review:

"The use of Harvey's recorded will to frame the story was a very early creative decision. By quickly establishing this intimacy, I hoped to shape a story that, despite mountains of political talk and plot, feels more like the personal story of the man than a political issue film." -Screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, from the Scene Notes --Screenwriter Dustin Lance Black, from the Scene Notes

"A total triumph! Brimming with humor, heart, sexual heat, political provocation, and a crying need to stir things up. If there's a better movie around this year, with more bristling purpose, I sure haven't seen it. An American classic." --Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
