HBO's THE NORMAL HEART Coming to Blu-ray 8/26

HBO Home Entertainment will bring director Ryan Murphy and writer Larry Kramer's The Normal Heart to Blu-ray on August 26th. Based on Kramer's groundbreaking Tony Award-winning 1985 play of the same name, the HBO original film stars Mark Ruffalo, Matt Bomer, Jim Parsons, Taylor Kitsch, Julia Roberts, Alfred Molina and Corey Stoll.

Murphy and Kramer's drama tells the story of the onset of the HIV-AIDS Crisis in New York City in the early 1980s, taking an unflinching look at the nation's sexual politics as gay activists and their allies in the medical community fight to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city and nation in denial.

Mark Ruffalo portrays Ned Weeks, who witnesses first-hand a mysterious disease that has begun to claim the lives of many in his gay community and starts to seek answers. Matt Bomer plays Felix Turner, a reporter who becomes Ned's lover. Taylor Kitsch plays Bruce Niles, a closeted investment banker who becomes a prominent AIDS activist. Jim Parsons plays gay activist Tommy Boatwright, reprising his role from the 2011 Broadway revival. Roberts plays physician Dr. Emma Brookner, a Survivor of childhood polio who treats several of the earliest victims of HIV-AIDS.

Kramer's play debuted at New York's Public Theatre in 1985 and was revived in Los Angeles and London, and off-Broadway. The 2011 Broadway revival garnered five Tony nominations, winning for Best Revival, Best Featured Actor and Best Featured Actress.

The Blu-ray edition of The Normal Heart is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. HBO has yet to detail special features.
