HBO will be premiering the dramatic film The Normal Heart on May 25, 2014 at 9pm ET/PT. The Normal Heart‘s based on the Tony Award-winning play by Larry Kramer and was directed by Glee‘s Ryan Murphy. Kramer, who adapted his own play for the screen, wrote the play after hosting a gathering of gay men in 1981 during the early days of the HIV/AIDS crisis. That first meeting became the basis of the Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC), a group advocating for the prevention of HIV, and the play first debuted in New York back in 1985.
 
The film adaptation boosts an A-list cast that includes Mark Ruffalo, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, Jim Parsons, and Julia Roberts. Alfred Molina, Joe Mantello, Jonathan Groff, Denis O’Hare, Stephen Spinella, Corey Stoll, Finn Wittrock and BD Wong also star in the dramatic film directed by Murphy.
 
The Normal Heart Plot:
 
The Normal Heart tells the story of the onset 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.
