Review of “The Dallas Buyer’s Club”

Hello everyone, I hope all is well with you! I’m back today and I’m discussing the movie, “The Dallas Buyer’s Club.” I didn’t know much about it, but when the two main actors in the movie won both Oscars for the best actor and best supporting actor, I had to see it.

Before I went to it, I did a little research and I found that the movie is based on a true story. This piqued my interest even more. Therefore, I was excited to see this movie and the performances of the actors that won the Oscars.

I absolutely loved it. “The Dallas Buyer’s Club” was a heartbreaking portrayal of what people with aids went through when the drug AZT was in the testing stage. It was an accurate portrayal of the frustration many aids victims felt with the slow process of the FDA’s approval of new drugs.

I love stories about renegades who defy bureaucrats and perform acts for the common good. They’re modern day Robin Hoods and something about these types of people trips my trigger.  Matthew Mcconaughey’s character, Ron Woodrow, is the hero of this story.

Jared Leto plays Rayon, a transgendered woman who’s also a drug addict. He does a wonderful job of portraying the unique challenges that transgendered people face. There was one touching scene where Rayon approaches his father and asks him for money to help the club he’s running with Ron Woodrow. The emotions in that scene are incredibly powerful. In that one scene, it sums up the plight of the transgendered people beautifully. When Rayon’s father tells him that he made his choice and Rayon calmly tells him that it was not a choice.

You see many people think that transgendered people choose their lifestyle and it’s not a choice it’s their special wiring in their brains.

Overall, this was an excellent movie and an eye opening experience. The actors definitely earned their Oscars with this one!
