HBO's The Normal Heart chronicles the emergence of AIDS in New York City in the early 1980s. Ryan Murphy's adaptation, based on the 1985 play by Larry Cramer, offers a shattering examination of both the physical effects of the disease itself, as well as the personal and political implications of the government's lack of response to the growing epidemic. The film tells the story through a group of characters who are struggling to make their voices heard amid the crisis. Here are 10 ways the movie broke our hearts:

If The Normal Heart, which premieres Sunday at 9/8c on HBO, were a work of fiction, it would be tragic. But knowing that it's rooted in actual events makes it nothing short of devastating.
Based on Larry Kramer's 1985 play (which was revived on Broadway in 2011) and adapted for the small screen by Ryan Murphy, The Normal Heart takes a brutal, unflinching look at the onset of the AIDS epidemic in New York City in the early 1980s. The story is told through the eyes of a group of activists who founded the organization Gay Men's Health Crisis to help patients living with the disease.

The heart breaks while tempers violently flare in HBO's The Normal Heart (Sunday, 9/8c), Ryan Murphy's emotionally and politically explosive film version of Larry Kramer's provocative stage drama about the early response, within and outside the gay community, to the '80s AIDS crisis.
Teeming with anger, sorrow, passion and purpose, this powerful and harrowing movie is part tragic love story in plague times, part agitprop manifesto and tribute to tireless activism. "We're not yelling loud enough!" bellows Ned Weeks (an engagingly abrasive Mark Ruffalo), the story's pushy moral conscience, a belligerent scold who refuses to play nice when so many lives are at stake.
