After months of waiting, the trailer for Dallas Buyers Club has finally been released and we have to admit that it looks even better than we had imagined. The film follows Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey), a Texan in the mid-1980s who is diagnosed with HIV and begins smuggling alternative medicine in from Mexico with a transgender woman named Rayon (Jared Leto.) There's also Jennifer Garner as Woodroof's doctor/love interest. While the movie looks fun and thrilling at times, we know that Ron died from AIDS-related illness in 1992 and, it being the AIDS crisis, that many others will die too.
So go to the theater with a box of tissues and expect to be taken on a journey of acceptance, overcoming homophobia, big bad government intervention and weeping. Opening November 1.
