Dallas Buyers Club (DVD)
Winner of three Academy Awards including Best Actor and Best Supporting Actor, Dallas Buyers Club is a unique story of the transformative power of resilience.
Texas cowboy Ron Woodroof’s (Matthew McConaughey) free-wheeling life is overturned in 1985 when he is diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. Shunned and ostracized by many of his old friends, and bereft of government-approved medicines, Ron will not accept a death sentence and takes matters into his own hands by tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world through legal and illegal means. He finds an ally in fellow AIDS patient Rayon (Jared Leto) and together they challenge the medical and scientific community, including their concerned physician Dr Eve Saks (Jennifer Garner).
“One of the best films of the year.” - St. Louis Post-Dispatch
“This is a bold, drastic and utterly persuasive inhabiting of a doomed fighter by a performer who has graduated from the shirtless rom-com Romeo of the last decade to indie-film actor du jour.” - Variety
