Just thirty years after it first polarized audiences from the stage, LARRY KRAMER’S much-acclaimed, award-winning play THE NORMAL HEART is making it to television this week-end on HBO. Produced, directed and co-written for the screen (with KRAMER) by the always provocative RYAN MURPHY, the film stars MARK RUFFALO, MATT BOMER, JIM PARSONS, TAYLOR KITSCH and JULIA ROBERTS in its recounting of the early days of the AIDS crises and the divisive effect it had on both the straight and gay communities. A complete labor of love for MURPHY, THE NORMAL HEART is nothing short of a triumph and will join the ranks of such films as LONGTIME COMPANION, ANGELS IN AMERICA, AS IS and PARTING GLANCES.
At a press conference to promote the film, MURPHY talked about the importance of KRAMER’S contribution. (Click on the media bar below to hear Ryan Murphy)
THE NORMAL HEART premieres on HBO Sunday 5/25.
