THE DALLAS BUYERS CLUB (http://i.txtsrving.info/click?v=VVM6NTI0ODU6MjYwODptb3ZpZSB0aXRsZToxYjYwM2VjN2EwZTY2NmI3OWY5ZDE1ZGE2YzQ4NWEyNzp6LTE2MDEtMzIwNTY2Ond3dy5tZWV0dXAuY29tOjA6MDo5MzBjNmU3ZTk5Yzc0YTQyYTNiZDIzY2E5NmRiNTNhNQ)

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 & Melisa Wallack. Spirit Award winner Matthew McConaughey portrays the real-life character, whose self-interest is galvanized into something much more. A son of Texas, Ron Woodroof is anelectrician (http://www.cinemark.com/the-dallas-buyers-club#) and rodeo cowboy. In 1985, he is well into an unexamined existence with a devil-may-care lifestyle. Suddenly, Ron is blindsided by being diagnosed as H.I.V.-positive and given 30 days to live. Yet he will not, and does not, accept a death sentence. His crash course of research reveals a lack of approved treatments and medications in the U.S., so Ron crosses the border into Mexico. There, he learns about alternative treatments and begins smuggling them into the U.S., challenging the medical and scientific community including his concerned physician, Dr. Eve Saks (Screen Actors Guild Award winner Jennifer Garner).
