Dallas Buyers Club is a 2013 American biographical drama film directed by Jean-Marc Vallée and starring Matthew McConaugheyJared Leto,Jennifer Garner, and Steve Zahn. The film is based on the true-life tale of Ron Woodroof, who was the subject of a lengthy 1992 article in The Dallas Morning News written by journalist and author Bill Minutaglio.[3] The film was released on November 1, 2013.


In 1985 Dallashomophobicdrug addicted rodeo cowboy Ron Woodroof is diagnosed with AIDS and is given 30 days to live. He begins taking theFood and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved AZT, the only drug legally available in the U.S, which brings him to the brink of death. To survive, he smuggles anti-viral medications from all over the world, which were still unapproved and unavailable in the U.S. Other AIDS patients seek out his medications forgoing hospitals, doctors, and AZT. With the help of his doctor, Eve Saks (Garner) and Rayon, a fellow patient, Ron creates the Dallas Buyers Club, one of the dozens which form around the country, providing its paying members with these alternative treatments. The clubs, growing in numbers and clientele, are brought to the attention of the FDA and pharmaceutical companies, which wage an all out war on Ron.


Our Thoughts:

McConaughey and Leto are superb, and this movie will at least be nominated for Best Picture. I don’t see how anyone could outdo Matt. He emaciated himself to play an AIDS victim and it was no wasted effort. My only complaint is the release timing of this movie. It is a sad depressing story about a bunch of people with HIV fighting ignorant FDA men. I mean they have AIDS. There is no magic cure and we know that from the beginning. This is not a “Holiday Film.” BUT, it is a great film that I recommend everyone take the time to see.  I say: Hands down Best Actor AND Best Supporting Actor! MR
