      Robert Roten Laramie Movie Scope Directed by a Hollywood legend, and featuring an all star cast, and based on Tony Kushner's Pulitzer Prize-winning play “Angels in America: A Gay Fantasia on National Themes,” you would expect this 2003 HBO miniseries to be golden, and it is.

      Susanna G I have watched this many times. It is a complex, multi-themed, shattering and beautiful miniseries, with luminous performances and sublime musical score. A healing journey for anyone dealing with illness a grief .... Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/24 Full Review Jeff M Not often, but every once in a great while, film and television can transcend their normal limitations and become true works of art. This is one of the very best examples I've ever seen. Originally aired on HBO in 6 parts and currently available for streaming on Amazon Prime, this is a true epic of the highest order. The ensemble cast is absolutely extraordinary, and watching Pacino and Streep onscreen together for the first time is a film buff's dream. Their scenes together in the last episode are beyond legendary. The late director Mike Nichols has done some magnificent work over his esteemed career, but I believe this will be remembered as his greatest achievement. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/11/24 Full Review Conta N Uma das melhores séries de todos os tempos. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/01/23 Full Review Finch F Television or cinema, this shows how majestic American drama can be. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 07/22/23 Full Review rex w I was disappointed. Played more like a Shakespearian Broadway production rather than a movie. Jeffery Write was outstanding. The other acting performances were overrated. I fast-forwarded through some of the babbling chatter. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review steve d Extremely powerful and beautifully acted.
