Summary
This HBO Films drama tells the dramatic, poignant and often-exasperating story of the early days of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, taking an unflinching look at the nation's sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fight to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial. This film boasts an all-star cast, including Oscar nominee Mark Ruffalo, Oscar winner Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, Alfred Molina and three time Emmy winner Jim Parsons. "The Normal Heart" is directed by Emmy winner Ryan Murphy and written by Oscar nominee Larry Kramer, adapting his groundbreaking, Tony Award-winning play of the same name
