Matthew McConaughey stars as real-life Texas cowboy Ron Woodroof, whose free-wheeling life was overturned in 1985 when he was diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. These were the early days of the AIDS epidemic, and the U.S. was divided over how to combat the virus. Ron decided to take matters in his own hands, tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal. Woodroof joined forces with an unlikely band of renegades and outcasts and established a hugely successful “buyers’ club.”
