Al Pacino, Meryl Streep and Emma Thompson lead an all-star cast in an epic movie event directed by Mike Nichols and screenplay by Tony Kushner based on his Pulitzer Prize-winning play: Angels In America
Set in 1985 when the impact of AIDs was at its peak this film is dated in both content and style. The acting is not convincing and the style of direction is haphazard. The dreams of two people coming into one dream was strange and too unlikely. The incoherent Jewish funeral was neither funny nor dramatic, the impact of AIDs is so much less now than 28 years ago. Just not worth it.
