See Dallas Buyers Club at Landmark Theater

Be there at 1pm. Look for me with a meetup sign in the lobby.  If you arrive late and don't see me you will have to look for us inside the theater.   The movie starts at 1:20pm

 

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. Bypassing the establishment, the entrepreneurial Woodroof joined forces with an unlikely band of renegades and outcasts—who he once would have shunned—and established a hugely successful "buyers club." Their shared struggle for dignity and acceptance is a uniquely American story of the transformative power of resilience. Also starring Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto, Dallas Buyers Club is directed by Jean-Marc Vallée (The Young Victoria)Official Web Site

    The movie was far superior than anything I expected. I had no idea McConaughey was such a wonderful actor. I knew he was good, but.... wow. I am hopeful that both he and Jared Leto will recieve Oscar nods. The company after the movie was even better! I'm so glad to have found PALLS. Really good people.

    Will recommend it to others, esp my adult children who were too young to know what was going on then with some of our friends. Thought McConaughey was outstanding. Wondered what the blackouts between scenes in early parts of film were all about. We missed the post conversation as my wife was looking for her gloves. Too bad.
