Matthew McConaughey goes on Oscar hunt with this moving AIDS drama
Matthew McConaughey dropped 30 pounds in order to star in this AIDS drama directed by Canadian filmmaker Jean-Marc Vallée (). The Magic Mike star plays Ron Woodroof, an American electrician who is diagnosed with AIDS in 1986. Given the lack of healthcare available to HIV patients at the time, he is told to simply 'go home and die.' Not one to give up, Dallas Buyers Club follows the true story of Woodroof's fight for survival as he procures and distributes crucial HIV drugs by smuggling them from Mexico.
