About the Movie

In Paris in the early 1990s, a group of activists goes to battle for those stricken with HIV/AIDS, taking on sluggish government agencies and major pharmaceutical companies in bold, invasive actions. The organization is ACT UP, and its members, many of them gay and HIV-positive, embrace their mission with a literal life-or-death urgency. Amid rallies, protests, fierce debates and ecstatic dance parties, the newcomer Nathan falls in love with Sean, the group’s radical firebrand, and their passion sparks against the shadow of mortality as the activists fight for a breakthrough.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: There are undoubtedly more informative chronicles of the era, and more accessible ones too. But there's something uniquely, transcendently beautiful in Campillo's particular vision and the unhurried way he unfurls it. – Leah Greenblatt, Entertainment Weekly, Oct 20, 2017

Fresh: A wrenching love story, set in Paris in the early 1990s, told against the background of ACT-UP AIDS activists fighting for their lives. Ron Campillo's raw and riveting film musters the emotional power to floor you. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Oct 23, 2017

Fresh: A restless, engrossing dramatic portrait of Parisian activists fighting the AIDS pandemic in the early 1990s. – Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times, Nov 2, 2017

Fresh: Here, as characters hit the streets for demonstrations, hit the discos to relax and hit the skids when they get sick, you're there with them, pulse pounding out more beats per minute than you might have thought possible. – Bob Mondello, NPR, Oct 26, 2017
