NOW Magazine - TIFF - - FILM FESTIVAL PREVIEW -

After re­cent awards-wor­thy work in films as di­verse as Magic Mike, Mud and Killer Joe, one ques­tion re­mains about Matthew McConaughey. Will he fi­nally get his Os­car nom­i­na­tion? This could be the film that does it. He plays the real-life Ron Woodruff, a wom­an­iz­ing, booz­ing het­ero­sex­ual man who con­tracts HIV, is told he has a month to live and be­comes an AIDS ac­tivist, smug­gling un­ap­proved treat­ments across the bor­der from Mex­ico to help him­self and oth­ers (in­clud­ing Jared Leto as a drag queen). With Que­bec’s Jean-Marc Val­lée (C.R. A. Z.Y., Café De Flore) at the helm, ex­pect mes­mer­iz­ing pe­riod im­agery, solid per­for­mances and a sen­si­tive por­trayal of the marginal­ized. Septem­ber 7, 10 pm, Princess of Wales; Septem­ber 8, 11 am, Visa Screen­ing Room (El­gin)
