Mixture of comedy, drama and history during the rise of AIDS in London
The AIDS crisis around the 1980’s in the UK is the topic surrounding the latest mini-series now available on HBO Max. “It’s a Sin” originally premiered on Britain’s Channel 4 and was met with much acclaim.
Created by Russel T. Davies who was responsible for creating “Queer as Folk” well over twenty years ago.
The show follows a small group of queer friends that do as many college-aged young people do, party. Those that have already watched have made clear that the show doesn’t hold back on the horrifying pains and real horrors of what it meant to have lived amidst HIV/AIDS during the 80’s.
The official synopsis reads:
It’s 1981, the start of a new decade and Ritchie (Olly Alexander), Roscoe (Omari Douglas) and Colin (Callum Scott Howells) begin a new life in London. Strangers at first, these young gay lads, and best friend Jill (Years and Years’ Lydia West), find themselves thrown together, and soon share each other’s adventures.
But a new virus is on the rise, and soon their lives will be tested in ways they never imagined. As the decade passes, and they grow up in the shadow of AIDS, they’re determined to live and love more fiercely than ever.
Also noteworthy and powerhouse acting in the show include the likes of Stephen Fry, Neil Patrick Harris, Keeley Hawes, Shaun Dooley and Tracy Ann Oberman
The 5 episodes will be available to watch, in one go around if you like to binge on HBO Max starting February 18, 2021.
