To celebrate the Dallas Buyers Club’s release on November 1, in the heat of the fall awards season, Focus Features is offering a prize pack of some of the finest films from its back catalogue.
Matthew McConaughey’s is not the only performance of note in this riveting and surprisingly relatable true story, which co-stars Jared Leto as his drug-addicted transsexual accomplice, so fittingly the Blu-rays up for grabs are also Focus titles that were very successful at the Academy Awards: Joe Wright’s Pride & Prejudice, Michel Gondry’s Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Gus Van Sant’s Milk and Ang Lee’s Brokeback Mountain.
Check out the Dallas Buyers Club official trailer.
In this fact-based drama, Matthew McConaughey portrays real-life Texas electrician Ron Woodroof, an ordinary man who found himself in a life-or-death battle with the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies. In 1985, Ron was blindsided with an HIV diagnosis and given 30 days to live. With medications still restricted in the US and the country still divided over how to combat the virus, Ron procured non-toxic alternative treatments from all over the world through both legal and illegal means. To avoid government sanctions against selling non-approved medicines and supplements, Ron established a “buyers club” for fellow HIV-positive people, giving them access to his supplies.
