"Alright, alright, alright!" to quote Matthew McConaughey in his acceptance speech for his first Oscar for Best Actor (not to mention Jared Leto's win for Best Supporting Actor!) - It's fantastic to see these brilliant performances get noticed in a movie that had to fight the odds to make it to the big screen. Gritty, angry, and skinny as hell, McConaughey breathes fire into real-life Ron Woodruff, a mean-spirited and homophobic Texas cowboy whose drug habits end up infecting him with HIV at the beginning of the AIDS crisis. When his doctors - along with the 1980s medical establishment - refuse to consider alternative treatments like AZT, McConaughey teams up with another patient - a drag queen played by Jared Leto - to start a buying club to bring medications back from Mexico. Directed by French-Canadian Jean-Marc Vallée, who made
