Dallas Buyers Club

Alright, alright, alright; Matthew McConaughey sheds the muscles to make room for something much grander, the performance of a lifetime. Independent film and Oscar Nominated “Dallas Buyers Club” did the impossible with its minimal budget of $5 million, depicting the life of real AIDS diagnosed, rodeo cowboy Ron Woodroof. Unsatisfied with his prognosis and lack of options for survival, Woodroof took matters into his own hands. Self medicating, and experimenting with drugs to ease AIDS’ symptoms. 
Woodroof starts the Dallas Buyers Club, by smuggling the drugs under the FDA’s noses and selling it to desperate patients. Although the film is entertaining to see and full of witty comedy, it is prompt yo remind the public that is mainly about a deadly disease and its patients. Stubborn, macho, Ron Woodrrom (Mettew McConaughey) shows his drive to live in a strange manner. Abusing alcohol and drugs, while medicating for the illness the audience may question the authority a man like this has to tell others about medical treatment. Easing the tension, his trusty business partner, Rayon (Jared Letto), is the life of the film and the most heartbreaking part. Audience will shed a tear for both these Oscar winning actors.
