Dallas Buyers Club: Trailer

— Posted by Andrea Lestrange

Directed by: Jean-Marc Vallée
Starring: Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Jared Leto

 

I must admit, I’ve never been the biggest Matthew McConaughey fan – there’s just something about him that I didn’t gel with. However, I saw Mud earlier this year, and I was surprised by my change of heart. He was great. It looks like his newfound serious, mature acting has transferred to Dallas Buyers Club too.  Jared Leto, who plays a HIV transgender woman, looks the part! Both Jared Leto and Matthew McConaughey underwent weight losses for their roles; Leto lost 30 pounds for the role and McConaughey lost 38 pounds. This trailer looks like it’s going to be a sensitive and sincere movie based on true events.

 

 

Spirit Award winner Matthew McConaughey portrays real-life Texas electrician Ron Woodroof, an ordinary man who found himself in a life-or-death battle with the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies. In 1985, Ron was blindsided by being diagnosed as H.I.V.-positive and given 30 days to live. Ron grabbed hold of non-toxic alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal. Seeking to avoid government sanctions against selling non-approved medicines and supplements, he established a “buyers club,” which fellow H.I.V.-positive people could join for access to his supplies.

I love to write about different types of film - from blockbusters, to indies, and documentaries. I enjoy exploring and discussing different themes and angles, with a light-hearted edge to keep things fun. I am based in London, and currently looking to pursue a career in the film industry.
