In 1985 Dallas, electrician and hustler Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey) works around the system to help AIDS patients get the medication they need after he is himself diagnosed with the disease.
With a great cast, such as McConaughey, Jared Leto (who plays the incredible Rayon), and Jennifer Garner (a doctor called Eve), and the lengths the first actors go in order play their specific roles is incredible. Looking at what it was like in 80s in America, the focuses more on the characters and their feelings than a plot. Though I would have preferred a striking speech from the main character at the end, it’s a powerful, thought-provoking film whose actors (MConaughey and Leto) do deserve Oscars. This year’s Oscars are going to be tough.
