Dallas Buyers Club Review

So last night for film night I watched Dallas Buyers Club. After seeing the trailers a long time ago I wanted to watch it, but did not really know what to expect. It was not entirely what I was expecting, but still a good watch.

It’s set in the mid 80s and is about a guy called Woodruff when he gets diagnosed with AIDS and is given 30 days to live. He learns about AZT, a drug which they are testing, but can’t get it from the doctors so pays a hospital working to smuggle it out for him; The hospital worker can no longer get the drug, and he gives him information on someone to contact in Mexico, after being hospitalized again, and meeting Rayon, a transgender HIV-positive drug addict. He goes down to Mexico and meets an American doctor who’s had his licence revoked.

The doctor tells him AZT is poisonous and prescribes him other drugs not FDA approved. He brings them back to the US, and then goes into partnership with Rayon and starts what becomes the Dallas Buyers Club, selling memberships and giving away drugs to other AIDS/HIV patients. The story unfolds from there, I won’t spoil the rest :mrgreen:
