Check out these pretty cool clips from Dallas Buyers Club, which (in case you forgot) opens this Friday! The movie comes from director Jean-Marc Vallee, it has an awesome cast on board which includes Matthew McConaughy, Jennifer Garner and Jared Leto, and will tell us a real-life story of Texas cowboy whose life was overturned when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive. Head inside to take a look…
In other words, McConaughey plays the above mentioned cowboy Ron Woodroof, whose free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live.
Garner, on the other hand, stars as his doctor Eve Saks, while Leto portrays a fellow patient named Rayon. The rest of the cast includes Steve Zahn, Dallas Roberts and Michael O’Neill.
These were the early days of the AIDS epidemic, and the U.S. was divided over how to combat the virus, and the rest of the story goes like this:
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.
Dallas Buyers Club opens on November 1st, 2013.
