Summary Texas cowboy Ron Woodroof's free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive. Shunned and ostracized by many old friends and bereft of government-approved medicines, he 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, he joined forces with an unlikely band of renegades and outcasts and established a hugely successful "buyers' club."
Note Bonus features: Deleted scenes; A look inside Dallas buyers club.
Awards Academy Awards, 2013: Best performance by an actor in a leading role (McConaughey), Best performance by an actor in a supporting role (Leto), Best achievement in makeup and hairstyling.
