The Normal Heart Movie Online
The film depicts the rise of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York City (among gay people) between 1981 and 1984, as seen through the eyes of writer/activist Ned Weeks, the founder of a prominent HIV advocacy group. Weeks prefers public confrontations to the calmer, more private strategies favored by his associates, friends, and closeted lover Felix Turner (Bomer). Their differences of opinion lead to arguments that threaten to undermine their shared goals. It is summer of 1981. Ned Weeks is an openly gay writer from New York City who travels to Fire Island Pines on Long Island to celebrate the birthday of his friend Craig Donner at a house on the beach. Other friends in attendance include Micky Marcus and the charismatic Bruce Niles, who has recently begun dating Craig. Craig is young and appears to be in good health. While walking on the beach, however, Craig feels dizzy and collapses. Later, when blowing out the candles on his birthday cake, Craig begins to cough repeatedly. While traveling back to New York City, Ned reads an article in The New York Times titled Rare Cancer Diagnosed in 41 Homosexuals. Back in the city, he visits the offices of Dr. Emma Brookner, a physician who has seen many patients unexpectedly afflicted with the symptoms of rare diseases that normally wouldn't harm people unless their immune systems have been compromised. All of these cases seem to be appearing in gay men. In the waiting room, Ned meets Sanford, a patient whose face and hands are marked with skin lesions caused by Kaposis sarcoma, a rare cancer. Brookner examines Ned, but finds that he does not have the symptoms of this disease. She asks Ned to help her raise awareness of this disease within the gay community.
