Ryan Murphy United States, 2014

ig_____or's rating of the film The Normal Heart

Mark Ruffalo threw me off by trying so hard and always acting so loud, I hope Larry Kramer (the 'real' Ned Weeks) wasn't all that... annoying. Matt Bomer, however, was great. It is, without a doubt, a very important subject matter to represent and a story worthy of being told, but in terms of direction, by presenting just one dramatic scene/speech after another, the whole thing kind of lost some of its power.
