Dallas Buyers Club

On Friday night, Sharon and I watched Dallas Buyers Club as an HD rental on the AppleTV. We are trying to knock out as many of the Oscar nominated films as possible before the Academy Awards show at the end of February. The film has six Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, Best Actor for Matthew McConaughey and Supporting Actor for Jared Leto.

The film based on the true story of AIDS patient Ron Woodroof. He started a buyers club to supply AIDS patients with drugs that weren't approved for use by the FDA in the United States.

The performances by McConaughey and Leto are very good. I suspect that they both may win Oscars for their performances. While it is a very well done film, I personally enjoyed Gravity more…
