Dallas Buyers Club
Based on a true story, Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey ) is an electrician and rodeo cowboy. In 1985, he is well into an unexamined existence with a devil-may-care lifestyle. Suddenly, Ron is blindsided by being diagnosed as H.I.V.-positive and given 30 days to live. His crash course of research reveals a lack of approved treatments in the U.S., so Ron crosses the border into Mexico. There, he learns about alternative treatments and begins smuggling them into the U.S., challenging his concerned physician, Dr. Eve Saks (Jennifer Garner).
An outsider to the gay community, Texan Ron finds an unlikely ally in a transsexual fellow AIDS patient Rayon (Jared Leto). Together, they establish a “buyers club,” where H.I.V.-positive people pay for access to the illegal supplies. With a growing community of friends and clients, Ron fights for dignity, education, and acceptance.
