Frontdesk by David Waggoner Films have played a large part in the history of AIDS—from the seminal Longtime Companion (1989) to Philadelphia (1993) to this year’s Oscar favorite, Dallas Buyers Club (released in 2013), Hollywood has made movie magic out of an oftentimes ignored and even silent epidemic.
