Loosely based on the true-life tale of Ron Woodroof, a drug-taking, women-loving, homophobic man who in 1986 was diagnosed with HIV/AIDS and given thirty days to live.
Good Film Carried By Strong Performances
It's pretty much a forgone conclusion that Dallas Buyers Club is memorable for the story it tells, but more so by the strong performances in the film. Matthew McConaughey, Best Actor. Jared Leto, Best Actor in a Supporting Role. Anyway, you get the point. Watch the film and you will see why. Meeting McConaughey's Ron Woodruff, you can't help but want to kick his ass. By the end of the movie, you end up appreciating what he did for so many people that suffered.
