After his snaky dance moves in Magic Mike and his bittersweet mentoring in Mud, Dallas Buyers Club finds continuing his astonishing resurgence with a career move mostly reserved to in recent times: loose a quarter of your body weight!
In the 1980s-set drama, McConaughey plays Ron Woodruff, a homophobic, foul-mouthed Texan (of course) who, after contracting AIDS, becomes an unlikely source of homophatic drugs for the community of mostly gay HIV patients in Dallas.
It's a true story and if executed with enough restraint could lead to all sorts of accolades and teary-eyed moviegoers.
