Texan electrician, playboy and part-time Rodeo cowboy, Ron Woodroof, is completely taken aback one day when he receives the horrifying news that he has tested HIV positive and will almost certainly die within a very short space of time. Ron, who is racist and homophobic, forms an unlikely alliance with fellow AIDs sufferer and transsexual Rayon. Together they research alternative treatments and set about smuggling them into the US. They set up a Buyer's Club which provides HIV patients with these newly acquired treatments for a monthly fee. This triggers an intense furore involving the AIDs community, the pharmaceutical companies, the FDA and Ron's own doctor who is able to identify with both sides of the situation; inevitably becoming caught up in the middle of this highly emotive issue. Who will win in Ron's fight for acceptance dignity and life?

Award-winning historical drama starring Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto. Rodeo cowboy and homophobic redneck Ron Woodroof (McConaughey)'s life is transformed drastically when a work-related accident results in him being diagnosed with AIDS. Given a life-expectancy of 30 days by his doctors, Ron initially continues his life in a state of denial but as the clock keeps ticking he becomes more and more interested in the background of the disease and its treatments. Learning that FDA-unapproved drugs are freely available over the border in Mexico, he takes matters into his own hands and begins transporting them into the United States. As word gets out about Ron's new venture, he is introduced to the local homosexual community and together with his new transgendered friend Rayon (Leto) he establishes the 'Dallas Buyers Club' which offers treatments to those in need. However, with the success of his business comes the attention of the FDA and local drug enforcement and he is soon engaged in a battle with the authorities who want to shut down the club. The film was nominated for six Academy Awards and won three, including Best Actor (McConaughey) and Best Supporting Actor (Leto). Both actors also received the corresponding accolades at the Golden Globes.
