This has to be one of the best series made for HBO in past few years.....
use one of the CD-WOW vouchers to get it for less ;-)
Angels In America swept the board at the 56th Annual Emmy Awards winning Outstanding Mini Series,
Outstanding Lead Actor In A Mini Series or Movie: Al Pacino, Outstanding Lead Actress In A Mini Series or Movie: Meryl Streep, Outstanding Supporting Actor In A Mini Series or Movie: Jeffrey Wright, Outstanding Supporting Actress In A Mini Series or Movie: Mary Louise Parker
The film tells the story of a gay man, Louis Ironson, struggling with his compassion and fidelity as his partner, Prior Walter, faces the spectre of AIDS and dreamlike visitations by a prophet seeking Angel. Louis becomes involved with a N.Y. Supreme Court Clerk, Joe Pitt, who wrestles with his career and sexual repression as his marriage to his Valium-addicted wife, Harper Pitt unravels.
Motivated to help her son, the clerk's Mormon mother, Hannah Pitt comes from Salt Lake to the intimidating world of New York, while a controversial and legendary lawyer, Roy Cohn (a fictional re-creation of the infamous American conservative ideologue who died of AIDS in 1986), attempts to enlist the clerk in his defense as he is ravaged by a hidden disease and the demons of his own hypocrisy.
Spanning the extremes of comedy and tragedy, love and betrayal, and life and death, Angels in America is a journey through the landscape of despair and hope that defines America at the end of the 20th Century.
Al Pacino, Meryl Streep and Emma Thompson lead an all-star cast of this HBO production, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play written by Tony Kushner and directed by Mike Nichols
