Angels in America

Based on Tony Kushner's lauded play, this sweeping production, which mixes real-life and fictional characters, is set against the backdrop of the 1980s AIDS epidemic. While conservative attorney and closeted homosexual Roy Cohn (Al Pacino) slowly dies of AIDS, he is tormented by the ghost of Ethel Rosenberg (Meryl Streep), whom he helped convict of being a Russian spy. Meanwhile, Cohn's employee Joe Pitt (Patrick Wilson), a closeted, married gay attorney, also struggles with his sexuality.
