Angels in America DVD

SKU ID #100237
This epic 2004 HBO six-part miniseries directed by Mike Nichols and written by Tony Kushner is set in mid-1980s New York City. Following the lives and spiritual experiences of people affected by AIDS during the Reagan Administration, the drama features Al Pacino as power-monger Roy Cohn and Justin Kirk as Prior Walter, both dying of the deadly disease. Ben Shenkman plays Walter's ex-lover Louis Ironson and Emma Thompson stars as Angel, who insists Walter is a prophet. Along with Meryl Streep as the ghostly Ethel Rosenberg, a woman Cohn sent to the electric chair, the ambitious film also features Patrick Wilson as Mormon gay lawyer Joe Pitt and Mary-Louise Parker as Joe's estranged, pill-popping wife. Mounted on an extravagant $60 million budget, this profound, small-screen adaptation of Tony Kushner's Pulitzer Prize-winning play has been hailed as a modern classic.
