DARE TO LIVE
"Loosely based on the true-life tale of Texas electrician Ron Woodroof, a drug taking, women loving, homophobic man who, in 1986, was diagnosed with full blown HIV/AIDS and given thirty days to live."
"Follows the story of his battle with the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies, after being diagnosed, and his search for alternative treatments that helped established a way in which fellow HIV-positive people could join for access to his supplies."
'Dallas Buyers Club' (2013) (Trailer below)
Some of what critics are saying:
"'Dallas Buyers Club' takes audiences back to the worst of the AIDS crisis, where the disease was a death sentence, and the public's terror and hostility were at its height."
"A solid biopic is made transcendent by McConaughey, who shed nearly 50 pounds and deserves to gain an Oscar for his ferocious, funny performance. I wouldn't be surprised if McConaughey and Leto get Academy Award nominations for their performances in this film."
"... unrelievedly downbeat, but provides McConaughey with his juiciest role yet, that of a good ol' boy hustler/AIDS advocate ... Leto can start honing his Oscar acceptance speech. He's that good."
Matthew McConaughey lost 50lbs for his role, Jared Leto lost 30 lbs and their acting is being called "transformative". Getting rave reviews for both the film itself as well as Oscar-level performances by both actors...'Dallas Buyers Club' is also getting a 95% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Don't miss what's being hailed as some of the best acting of 2013.
