Two new clips from Jean-Marc Vallee‘s upcoming Dallas Buyers Club have arrived just in time to remind you that this pretty intense drama (based on a true story, by the way), opens next month. Starring Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leto and Jennifer Garner, the movie will tell us the true-life tale of Ron Woodroof, whose free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive…
Vallee directed the whole thing from a script written by Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack, which follows a homophobic drug addict party boy Ron Woodroof, played by McConaughey, diagnosed with HIV and is given 30 days to live.
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.
Here’s the rest of the plot:
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.
