Directed entirely by Peter Hoar, the miniseries has a rich ambience, evidenced by the images already released. In the general context of production, this appears to be very promising. Themes like the AIDS crisis and the relationship of the main characters are recurrent in the production.
Over the five episodes planned, the audience will meet a group of young gay friends living their lives fully until they are faced with the threat of the HIV virus. All of these young people are of different backgrounds and will need to come together, more than ever, to face the infamous disease.
In addition, the trailer already shows that the episodes will have extremely exciting and engaging scenes regarding the fight against AIDS and prejudice. All of these expectations have already been confirmed by The Guardian, which gave the HBO Max production top marks in its evaluation published in the last few days.
The premiere is scheduled for February 18 on streaming.
