‘The Normal Heart’

Ryan Murphy’s adaptation of Larry Kramer’s 1985 play about the early days of the AIDS epidemic captures all the original’s emotional and devastating anger. Mark Ruffalo anchors a top-notch cast as writer Ned Weeks, who in early 1980s New York City founded the Gay Men’s Health Crisis while battling the medical and political communities. Amazing and nuanced work from Matt Bomer, Julia Roberts and Jim Parsons as well. Not to be missed. 9 p.m. Sunday, May 25, on HBO (seattletimes.com/tvlistings).
