Synopsis

When Texan cowboy Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey) is diagnosed with HIV, he is prescribed a highly toxic drug and given thirty days to live. Refusing to accept this death sentence, Woodroof taps into the world of underground pharmaceuticals and becomes a kingpin of an unapproved alternative treatment that is both restorative and life extending.

Woodroof struggles with the FDA as he helps spread awareness of the government’s misinformation, taking a stand against the politically corrupt who prefer to profit from the sick instead of aiding them in their recovery.

  • 5 stars "the acting was superb. And the feel of the 80s realistically portrayed. loved the movie."
  • 3 stars "good movie - not great, but good"
  • 4 stars "4 stars just for the acting..Matthew McConaughey is terrific and maturing into a great actor. Kudos to the supporting cast ie. LETO. Original story, brought through an adapted screenplay keeps you engrossed and movie is over before you know it. Exhausting movie, imagining the physical transformations of some of the actors. A GEM."
