Dallas Buyers Club -- D: Vallée S: McConaughey, Garner, Leto -- 2013

Director: Jean-Marc Vallée
Writer: Craig Borten & Melisa Wallack

Cast:
Matthew McConaughey
Jennifer Garner
Jared Leto
Steve Zahn
Dallas Roberts


Plot: Loosely based on the true-life tale of Ron Woodroof, a drug taking, women loving, homophobic man who, in 1986 was diagnosed with full blown HIV/AIDS and given thirty days to live. He started taking the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved AZT, the only legal drug available in the U.S, which brought him to the brink of death. To survive, he smuggled non-toxic, anti-viral medications from all over the world that were still illegal in the U.S.

Is there a release date on this yet? Possibly award season?

Nope. It's in post production and sure to be released this year, that's the best info out there.

Looks like MM is taking a page from the Christian Bale playbook.

Would method acting involve losing a lot of weight for this role, or actually contracting HIV? Just wondering, because McConaughey is looking pretty frail there.

Pretty much since his 2 year hiatus between Ghosts of Girlfriends Past and Lincoln Lawyer (discounts A Time to Kill and Frailty, though he's quite good in those too).

He's been a good actor for a long while now. Problem was that he kept getting in movies that probably got him a good amount of pussy. Sadly they were bad films. Though I could understand why he'd do them. Wonder why he changed it. Good for him.

This explains why he looks so emaciated in the Wolf of Wall Street trailer.

Jared Leto's performance (and weight loss) was astonding - he in my mind deserves a nomination for supporting actor.

I wasn't entirely sure what I was expecting in terms of enjoying this movie, but afterwards I was completely wow'ed. It's now in my top ten of the year.

Reviewed this a while back: http://cinematicallyenigmatic.blogsp...lubReview.html

I give it a 4 out of 5 as well. McConaughey and Leto poured their hearts into these characters and it shows.
