Tackling the painful subject of HIV in the 1980s, HBO just released a trailer for Ryan Murphy’s “The Normal Heart.”

And with a stellar cast that includes Mark Ruffalo, Jonathan Groff, Taylor Kitsch, Matt Bomer, Julia Roberts, Jim Parsons and Dennis O’Hare, this made-for-TV event is going to be huge.

Per the synopsis, "The Normal Heart 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 fought to expose the truth about the burgeoning epidemic to a city in denial.”

“The Normal Heart” was written by Larry Kramer (he also wrote the stage show) and will premiere on HBO on May 25th at 9pm.
