God has abandoned Heaven. It's 1985 and the Reagans are in the White House. Death is swinging the scythe of AIDS. In Manhattan, Prior tells Lou, his lover, he's ill and Lou decides to bolt. As disease and loneliness ravage Prior, guilt invades Lou. Joe is an attorney, who is Mormon and Republican, is pushed by right-winger Roy toward a job at the Justice Dept. Both Joe and Roy are in the closet: Joe out of shame and religious turmoil; Roy to preserve his power and access. An angel invites Prior to be a prophet in death. Joe's mother and Belize, a close friend, help Prior choose

EXCELLENT!!!
Tour-de-force performances by
Jeffrey Wright
Meryl Streep
Al Pacino
Patrick Wilson & the rest of the cast.

Al Pacino was EXCELLENT as the MEAN Roy Cohn (with his conscious "whipping his arse", played by the MAGNIFICENT, Meryl Streep, as Ethel Rosenberg; who was wrongly accused of treason in 1951). Her recital of the Kaddish was remarkable.

I never saw the B'way play, but judging by this film, Tony Kushner's awards were well-deserved. This is not just great theater; it's a great work of modern history.

Emma Thompson? Al Pacino? Glenn Close? How could you not love it? Edgy fanatsy-realism.
