Matthew McConaughey stars in DALLAS BUYERS CLUB as real-life Texas cowboy Ron Woodroof, whose free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. These were the early days of the AIDS epidemic, and the U.S. was divided over how to combat the virus. Ron, now shunned and ostracized by many of his old friends, and bereft of government-approved effective medicines, decided to take matters in his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The AIDS epidemic was not a happy-ending story. But it was certainly a test of the human spirit. Ron Woodroof passed that test."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"One of the best films of the year."
‑ Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Lightweight, but not trivial; funny, but not cheap; moving, but not pathetic."
‑ Anna Tatarska, Movie Mezzanine
"Films can be lifted by their performances, just as careers can be resurrected by the embrace of difficult choices. Though grounded by a resonant real-life story of struggle and survival, Dallas Buyers Club offers an example of both."
‑ Sarah Ward, Trespass
"A powerfully moving film, and McConaughey's extraordinary physical transformation is much more than a stunt."
‑ Jake Wilson, Sydney Morning Herald
"Just about everything is right with Dallas Buyers Club, beginning with Matthew McConaughey's literally transformative portrayal."
‑ Steven Rea, Philadelphia Inquirer
"A straight-up portrait of a man who figured out a way to cling to life longer than anyone expected and, in the process, learned to let the world in."
‑ Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald
"The movie isn't simply well acted or written; all of its observant qualities and pitch perfect performances are married to a tone and method that are courageous in conviction."
‑ David Keyes, Cinemaphile.org
"This incredible film charts one man's determination to stay alive against astounding odds and, most tantalisingly, supporting the very people that he despised."
‑ Colin Fraser, FILMINK (Australia)
"It's trying to explore a lot of angles and it does a good job, as opposed to a great job."
‑ Matthew Toomey, ABC Radio Brisbane
"A solid biopic is made transcendent by McConaughey, who shed nearly 50 pounds and deserves to gain an Oscar for his ferocious, funny performance."
‑ Rafer Guzman, Newsday
"Played with raw, rattling fury and grace by Matthew McConaughey, Woodroof is a tarnished protagonist of the first order."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"Não é apenas um estudo de personagem, apresentando-se também como um retrato angustiante de uma época."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Leto almost steals the show, while Jennifer Garner represents stability as the gutsy hospital medic in a film from director Jean-Marc Vallee that is well-paced, involving and thought-provoking."
‑ Hilary A White, Irish Independent
"An uplifting story of undying hope and unlikely heroism."
‑ Jim Schembri, 3AW
