Oh Man, This ‘The Normal Heart’ Teaser Will Rattle You

+

HBO lost some clout around the water cooler when True Detective ended last night, but then came this is: a, shattering teaser for The Normal Heart that packs more emotional punch than some movies do in their entire running time.  The Ryan Murphy-directed movie is based on Larry Kramer’s autobiographical 1985 play about the onset of the AIDS crisis in New York City. Mark Ruffalo stars at Ned Weeks, an activist who goes on to found an HIV advocacy group. Ruffalo, who is all raw emotion here, is joined by Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, and Jim Parsons, all of whom appear to be on a mission to straight-up devastate you. The Normal Heart premieres this spring, and you can watch the teaser below.
