Playwright Larry Kramer's searing chronicle of the AIDS crisis's early years receives a remarkable retelling with this all-star HBO presentation. With New York's gay community ravaged by the epidemic, a journalist/activist (Mark Ruffalo) partnered with a sympathetic doctor (Julia Roberts) in a quest to raise awareness for those at risk as well as those in authority. Jim Parsons, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, BD Wong, and Alfred Molina also star. 143 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English Dolby Digital 5.1, French Dolby Digital 5.1, Spanish Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English, French, Spanish; behind-the-scenes footage.
