Director: Jean-Marc Vallée
Writers: Craig Borten; Melisa Wallack
Keywords: Drama, AIDS
A stereotypically-bigoted Texas redneck's HIV diagnosis during the darkest days of the AIDS epidemic leads to desperate measures and a dire predicament.
Electrician-cum-rodeo bull rider Ron Woodruff lives hard, plays hard, and hates hard, enjoying a life as a promiscuous drug-abusing homophobe in the extremely conservative confines of 1985 Dallas, Texas. When his careless ways lead to a shocking HIV-positive diagnosis during the worst days of the AIDS epidemic and an estimated month left to live, Ron's denial-turned-desperation finds him willing to go to the ends of the Earth in search of a cure, placing him in the thick of a "buyers' club" charged with procuring an experimental anti-AIDS drug and engaged in an all-out war against Big Pharma. Won Academy Awards for Best Actor, Best Supporting Actor, and Best Makeup; nominated for Best Picture, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Editing.
