The first trailer is out for the new film “Dallas Buyers Club.” The movie is based on the true story of Ron Woodruff, a Texas man who was diagnosed with AIDS and given less than a month to live. Rather than accepting his death sentence, Woodroof went to extreme lengths to find and smuggle medication from Mexico. Eventually, Woodroof began selling those meds to other sufferers and created what became the Dallas Buyers Club. Matthew McConaughey plays Woodruff, and underwent a startling transformation, dropping more than 5o pounds for the part. Our boyfriend Jared Leto plays Rayon, an HIV+ trans woman who goes into business with McConaughey.
Even watching the three minute trailer made me tear up, you guys. This movie is going to be so heartbreaking, but so necessary to see. It’s not often that we see HIV/AIDS being represented in major film and television shows, and it seems clear that McConaughey and Leto really committed to their roles. Tears! So many tears! [Celebuzz]
