Critic Reviews for An Early Frost
The DVD of this historically relevant TV film about AIDS contains commentary from actor Aidan Quinn and writers Ron Cown and Dan Lipman (creators of Queer as Folk) and DiFelicinatonio's 1987 Emmy-winner docu short, Living with AIDS, about Todd Coleman
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
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!
A touching story.
Shows how a lot of familys can not deal with their children being gay. But when you come down with HIV that is when you find out who your real family is.
