Watch: New Teaser For ‘The Normal Heart’ With Mark Ruffalo & Julia Roberts Raises Its Voice

Watch: New Teaser For 'The Normal Heart' With Mark Ruffalo & Julia Roberts Raises Its Voice

We’ll know in a few days if our prediction that “The Normal Heart” will be hitting the Cannes Film Festival is accurate, but until then, a new teaser for the HBO film is here.

The drama is based on the acclaimed play by Larry Kramer, chronicling the onset of the HIV/AIDS crisis in New York City in the early 1980s as gay activists and concerned doctors fought to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic. And it’s a wrenching tale, with Mark Ruffalo’s line, “I am trying understand why nobody gives a shit, now we’re dying,” resonating pretty hard. Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch (along with a questionable wig) and Jim Parsons co-star with Ryan Murphy behind the camera.

“The Normal Heart” debuts on HBO on May 25th. Watch below.

ehhhmmm… Taylor Kitsch has been talking about nothing else in the media than the frequent blow-out sessions he had to sit through during the shoot to get his hair all big and fluffy and that he coloured it for the role. Apparently it was the standing joke on the set. So questionable wig seems a bit strange as a comment in this article? Is the author just making things up as he goes?
