Written by Larry Kramer and based on his experiences raising awareness for the '80s HIV/AIDS epidemic, "The Normal Heart" features a slew of top tier actors including Julia Roberts, Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, and Mark Ruffalo as Kramer's fictional stand-in, Ned Weeks. It's an emotional film, and these clips only begin to scrape the surface of how devastating it can be -- but they're undoubtedly worth watching, especially the third, which will prepare you for Murphy's heavy-handed symbolism.

"The Normal Heart" premieres Sunday night at 9pm on HBO.
