When you’re one of the favorites to earn a spot on the list of Best Picture Oscar nominees, it’s okay to brag. And Focus Features is doing a bit of pre-Oscar bragging by releasing a new Dallas Buyers Club trailer showing off some of its award nominations and wins. Two of the critics’ groups I’m a part of are mentioned – Broadcast Film Critics Association’s Critics’ Choice Movie Awards and the San Diego Film Critics Society – as well as a round-up of its Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations, all of which were well-deserved.
 
The Plot:
 
Matthew McConaughey stars in Dallas Buyers Club as real-life Texas cowboy Ron Woodroof, whose free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. These were the early days of the AIDS epidemic, and the U.S. was divided over how to combat the virus. Ron, now shunned and ostracized by many of his old friends, and bereft of government-approved effective medicines, decided to take matters in his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal. Bypassing the establishment, the entrepreneurial Woodroof joined forces with an unlikely band of renegades and outcasts – who he once would have shunned – and established a hugely successful “buyers’ club.” Their shared struggle for dignity and acceptance is a uniquely American story of the transformative power of resilience.
