This is Memorial Day weekend and HBO is offering "Game of Thrones" fans the opportunity to catch their breath before the season draws to a close in the not-too-distant future.

Directed by Ryan Murphy and based on the Award-winning play, this is a movie about the onset of the HIV-AIDS crisis in New York in the early 1980s. It is about politics and medicine and culture. It also features an outstanding cast including Mark Ruffalo, Alfred Molina, Jim Parsons, and Julia Roberts.
