Hello my friends,
Today we have great news from the mekka of every Amrican-movie lover , Hollywood. In 2014 - still a long way off I know - a movie called "The Normal Heart" will be released. For the "culture buffs" among you: Yes, you should have heard of it, it was a play written by Larry Kramer in 1985 and later became a broadway phenomena.
The story goes as follows: A writer and gay activist called Ned Weeks, Ned for short, will struggle to create an organization to raise awareness about the fact that an unknown disease (AIDS) is killing off a very specific group of people namely the gay community. He gets help from his handicapped phycisian and his homophobic brother, talk about irony. Together they will fight the political and social beliefs of the 80's. I'm not going to reveal the end, however a quick web-search will probably get you the answer but I would STRONGLY recommend you remove your fingers from the keyboard and just go look at the movie when it's ready.
Although this cinematic journey is still a long way of, by only looking at the suprême cast we can be sure this movie will be a great succes. Nobody less than Matt Bomer (Magic Mike) as Felix Turner, Tim Parsons (The Big Bang Theory, The Big Year, The Muppets) as Tommy Boatwright, Julia Roberts (Duplicity, Ocean's Twelve, Mirror Mirror) as Dr. Emma Brookner and Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers, Thanks for Sharing, Shutter Island) as the protagonist Ned Weeks.
This star studded movie will be directed by non-other than the fantastic Ryan Murphy who also gave us "Eat, pray, love" and the musical tv-series "Glee".
Untill next time. - Elias
