Great Movie, Does Honor to those affected by AIDS
26 May 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Over 35 million people have died from AIDs and each person affected by HIV/AIDS has their own story to tell. Not to say that every AIDs movie is immune to criticism, but on a whole this film was excellent. Larry Kramer wanted his vision regarding the AIDS epidemic to include love and relationships in the gay community. The Normal Heart is about how the gay community, especially the gay men, were suffering from the AIDS virus as well as the prejudices and ostracism of the public's reaction to the epidemic and who it affected. The Normal Heart is about love, affection,and intimacy regardless of who it is between and to remind people of the suffering of those affected by HIV/AIDS.
