Critic Reviews for An Early Frost
Though a capusle of its times, this groundbreaking TV film, the first work about AIDS in film or television (but not theater) holds up well due to high-caliber acting by Aidan Quinn as the son with AIDS and Ben Gazzarra and Gena Rowlands as his parents
Audience Reviews for An Early Frost
great important film, some of the information is obviously dated but the strong performances by all involved make it a powerful experience
A touching story.
The first movie to deal with the HIV/AIDS crisis. It needed to be made to dispel the myths of this awful virus. I commend everyone that worked on that film. A movie made about AIDS in 1985 could have meant the end of their careers but they felt the movie's message was more important. Good for them!
