"The producers responsible for THE NORMAL HEART pulled off an extraordinary feat of storytelling. The film is both a moving narrative that lends a human face to the crucial early struggles against HIV/AIDS, and a compelling call to uphold the activist legacy of its creators and inspiration," said Vance Van Petten, National Executive Director of the Producers Guild. "This is a remarkable piece of filmmaking, and an essential chapter in our ongoing struggle with this epidemic. We are thrilled to celebrate and honor THE NORMAL HEART with the Stanley Kramer Award."
