An imperfect man fights for survival during an uncertain time in America.
Inspired by true events, Ron Woodroofs story of strength is told in DALLAS
BUYERS CLUB, directed by Jean-Marc Valle from an original screenplay by Craig
Borten & Melisa Wallack. Spirit Award winner Matthew McConaughey portrays
the real-life character, whose self-interest is galvanized into something much
A son of Texas, Ron Woodroof is an electrician and rodeo cowboy. In 1985, he is
well into an unexamined existence with a devil-may-care lifestyle. Suddenly,
Ron is blindsided by being diagnosed as H.I.V.-positive and given 30 days to
live. Yet he will not, and does not, accept a death sentence.
His crash course of research reveals a lack of approved treatments and
medications in the U.S., so Ron crosses the border into Mexico. There, he
learns about alternative treatments and begins smuggling them into the U.S.,
challenging the medical and scientific community including his concerned
physician, Dr. Eve Saks (Screen Actors Guild Award winner Jennifer Garner).
An outsider to the gay community, Ron finds an unlikely ally in fellow AIDS patient
Rayon (Gotham Independent Film Award winner Jared Leto), a transsexual who
shares Ron's lust for life. Rayon also shares Ron's entrepreneurial spirit:
seeking to avoid government sanctions against selling non-approved medicines
and supplements, they establish a buyers club,Â where H.I.V.-positive people
pay monthly dues for access to the newly acquired supplies. Deep in the heart
of Texas, Ron's pioneering underground collective beats loud and strong. With a
growing community of friends and clients, Ron fights for dignity, education,
and acceptance. In the years following his diagnosis, the embattled Lone Star
loner lives life to the fullest like never before.
