An imperfect man fights for survival during an uncertain time in America. Inspired by true events, Ron Woodroof’s story of strength is told in Dallas Buyers Club, directed by Jean-Marc Vallée from an original screenplay by Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack.
Matthew McConaughey portrays the real-life character, whose self –interest is galvanised into something much more. Blindsided by his diagnosis of HIV and given 30 days to live, Woodruff’s search for alternative treatments helped establish a way in which HIV positive people across the country could access his supplies.
An outsider to the gay community, Ron finds an unlikely ally in fellow AIDS patient Rayon (Jared Leto) and together they embark on a battle with the medical establishment and a fight for dignity, education and acceptance.
