The Normal Heart will cover this week's Entertainment Weekly--not bad for an HBO drama about the beginnings of the AIDS crisis.
It features stars Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, and Mark Ruffalo along with facts about the AIDS epidemic. EW isn't particularly known for its serious covers, but this somber cover declares the HBO adaptation is the "most important, infuriating, heartbreaking movie of the year." The issue hits newsstands on Friday.
I personally am not familiar with the play, but I am very much looking forward to the film. Even though I'm not a fan of Ryan Murphy, he has noted that this is a departure for him. A few brief interviews with the actors popped up earlier this month as well (available below). Check out the trailer one more time.
