the normal heart trailer
A big mouth isn't always a problem; sometimes, it can be the solution.

That's the theme running through the trailer for the upcoming HBO film, "The Normal Heart." Directed by "Glee" creator Ryan Murphy from a play by Larry Kramer, the movie chronicles the beginning of the AIDS epidemic in the '80s.

"The Normal Heart" covers a similar timeframe as the Oscar-nominated "Dallas Buyers Club," but focuses on a gay man (Mark Ruffalo) who becomes an activist. He teams up with a doctor (Julia Roberts) to raise awareness and lobby politicians to care about.

Ruffalo is all fire and passion, while Roberts is the cool, no-nonsense physician. And they're just two members of a sterling cast, which also includes Matt Bomer, Taylor Kitsch, and Jim Parsons. We have a feeling this will rake in the awards come Emmy time.

"The Normal Heart" premieres May 25 on HBO.
