Dallas Buyers Club (2013)Took me a lot of courage to finally get around to viewing this flick.… More Took me a lot of courage to finally get around to viewing this flick. Seeing a star you know dangerously thin for this role makes you wonder what they went through as actors or actresses to make you believe that their script is real. Ron Woodoof (Matthew McConaughey) finds out that he has days to live after contracting AIDS. Having being rejected by his friends and co-workers for having the "queer person's" disease, he decides to combat this illness to prolong his life. Being that this disease is relatively new, the drug that the FDA has approves doesn't quite work for him. He decides to go through every measure he can find, legally and illegally in his country and outside of it to find the medications that are not FDA approved. Getting help from the most unlikeliest alliances, Rayon (Jay Leto) and Dr. Eve Sachs (Jennifer Garner) he launches the "Dallas Buyers Club", which works wonders...and prolongs his life longer than the doctor's prognosis. You feel his angst, struggles, and frustrations to be successful. Truly a wonderful movie to experience. Please see this, human interest drama.
