This is a movie based on the true story of Ron Woodroof. He was diagnosed with AIDS during the 1980’s, when there wasn’t much understood about treating the disease. He took matters into his own hands and started smuggling unapproved pharmaceutical drugs into Texas. They were distributed to fellow people with AIDS by establishing the “Dallas Buyers Club” while facing opposition from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). This movie is riveting and heart wrenching with a great story. If you are in the mood for an interesting and intriguing story, this may be the film for you.
