Audience Reviews for And the Band Played On

  • Aug 31, 2009
    A bit dated mainly because of the actors. I was impressed but the emotional part of the story kinda veers of course and the movie starts focusing more on who gets credit for the antivirus, which wasn't as interesting to me. Some interesting information that I'd never heard though and I would recommend it.

    This film chronicles the history of HIV and AIDS. Everyone should watch this moving film!

    Not bad, although it was more a Lifetime movie than an actual film. Still, holds up surprisingly well.
