Ryan Murphy film about AIDS epidemic premieres May 25 on HBO
Mark Ruffalo pleads for help from a Congress that would rather ignore the AIDS epidemic in a dramatic new teaser trailer for Ryan Murphy's upcoming HBO film, “The Normal Heart.”
Based on Larry Kramer's award-winning play of the same name, “The Normal Heart” follows Kramer's semi-autobiographical story dealing with the HIV/AIDS crisis within the gay community in the 1980s.
Ruffalo plays the fictionalized version of Kramer, Ned Weeks, who leads a campaign to focus medical and government attention on the epidemic.
