Dallas Buyers Club (2013).

Director: Jean-Marc Vallée. Cast: Matthew McConaughey, Jennifer Garner, Jared Leto, Steve Zahn. 117 min. Rated R. Biography/Drama.

Racist homophobic heterosexual Texan electrician tests HIV+ in the mid 80s, and goes on a crusade to smuggle non-FDA approved AIDS drugs into the country. Set McConaughey and Leto's incredible Oscar-worthy performances aside, and there's really not much left to the movie. The entire hospital strangely appears to have only clerk working all the shifts, the entire Dallas only one policeman popping up at every corner, and the entire country only one DEA agent. And Garner is not a good actress. Just didn't get what the take-home message here was. Watch this for a much better film on the subject.
