HBO Films’ “The Normal Heart” looks to be earth shattering when it premieres, so any piece of Ryan Murphy’s labor of love we can see early is a welcome gift. Luckily three new clips have been released featuring cast members Mark Ruffalo and Taylor Kitsch pleading with Julia Roberts and Matt Bomer to pay attention to their cause.
Writer Larry Kramer adapted his Tony-awarding winning play for the film version, which tells the story of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City in the 1980’s and the battles that were fought with the government and medical communities to get the word out.
“The Normal Heart” premieres May 25 on HBO. Watch the clips below:
