100 Word Review – Dallas Buyers Club (2013)

Winner of three Oscars, including Best Performance by an Actor in a Leading Role for Matthew McConaughey and Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role for Jared Leto (who I did not recognise until the end credits), and nominated for three more (including the illusive Best Picture) this is certainly worth a watch.

Following the life of Ron Woodroof (McConaughey), a homophobic electrician who contracts HIV in 1985 and finds himself supporting the “faggots” he has been so disgusted by in order to get the drugs he needs.

Jean-Marc Vallée’s direction gives the drama a well delivered personal touch.
