I didn't know anything about Dallas Buyers Club going in. Cam wanted to check some movies out for weeks now and we finally got a chance to see two films. I had seen a image of Jared Leto as a very unattractive woman and Matthew McConaughey looking like he was close to dying but didn't know that these had anything to do with each other.
This is about a guy named Ron Woodruff who is a homophobic, likely racist rodeo cowboy. This guy snorts coke like it ain't no thing, has lots of random sex, and drinks while doing each of those other things. One day at work he ends up getting electrocuted and while at the hospital they tell him that he has HIV. HIV is still new at this point and people still believed (this is in 1985) that only gay men got it. Ridiculously, there are still people that think this way. Doctor tells him that he has just 30 says to live which pisses him off.
