HBO has an uplifting story about AIDS

`Life Support' adds love to a downbeat drama

TV Preview

March 08, 2007|By David Zurawik | David Zurawik,SUN TELEVISION CRITIC

Life Support is the kind of film that separates HBO from every other commercial channel on television.

First, it stars Queen Latifah, who is normally seen on the big screen in feature films like Chicago. But more importantly, it offers an enlightened and touching exploration of AIDS in the African-American community - the kind of controversial and potentially downbeat topic that prime-time network TV steadfastly avoids.

Life Support premieres at 8 Saturday night on HBO - with 15 additional showings throughout the month.
