      The best film of 2014 so far was not in theaters, it was on HBO. And now it is on disc and it is amazing. Incredible acting, a powerful script by the original playwright, Larry Kramer-- and, this is a surprise, Ryan Murphy's first time in a long time -- directing a film in which he did not drop the ball. This one is on par with some of the best films ever made about gay rights: Milk, Angels in America-- this is not to be missed.

      This is a powerful and moving film that breathes real life into the history and facts of the AIDS epidemic, and the tremendous array of the spectrum of the gay lifestyle. Ryan Murphy has shown his talents yet again with this film, making it heart-warming, heart-breaking, and completely unforgettable. Don't watch this film to feel good, watch it for the power of the story itself.

      Best Drama reflecting the real 1980s

      An entire generation of men died in the 80s and Normal Heart reflects that time in a most unique and compelling way. Having lived in NY and actually aware of GMHC's services, this film brings the viewer into the 'frame' of how it came to be, the brave men that struggled to help, and how survival leaves its scars; you don't have to be a 60+ widow(er) to be touched by this film

      What a great movie. The Normal Heart is a heartfelt movie that shows the reality of the start of the AIDS epidemic in the 80's in NYC and the ignorance of the Reagan Era. It shows the hurt and and humanity and the love of the human spirit and the resolve to never give up fighting for the ones we love. No matter who you are, Don't miss this movie.

      Phenomenal movie about the misconceptions and fears of HIV / AIDS in the early 80's especially by our government. Mark Ruffalo, Matt Bomer, Julia Roberts and Jim Parson were absolutely amazing! Not surprised that this movie received 16 Emmy nominations. This was truly a raw and emotional film that was brilliantly done.

      This is a very timely and most needful movie. There is still great risk out there and both denial, and disbelief. This movie slows the real world and doesn't hold back. The story is well casted, flows well and holds your attention. The quality of the filming seems good to me, though I am a layperson.

      I really like the actors in this movie which is why I purchased the video but the content was too graphic for my taste. The story is sad but the message the movie was sending about love and tolerance for your fellow man was timely and important.

      Some movies are so wonderful you are behooved to upgrade them to blu-ray and this is one of them. The story is poignant and heartbreaking but not without hope. All of the actors were great, especially Matt Boomer and Julia Roberts.
