The film is hard work at times and very sad. However, the story of a straight man dying of Aids who is told he only has 30 Days to live is exceptionally compelling. The story is also very uplifting and without douth a celebration of the sprit. Be prepared for the Emotional Roller Coaster and a few well needed drinks after. Please see this film

Matthew McConaughey stars in DALLAS BUYERS CLUB 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, now shunned and ostracised by many of his old friends, and bereft of government-approved effective medicines, decided to take matters in his own hands.
