Matthew Mc­conaughey won an Os­car for his por­trayal of good ol’ boy Ron Woodroof who, when he con­tracted AIDS in 1985, trans­formed from wom­an­is­ing bigot to a cru­sad­ing en­tre­pre­neur who set up a club to give AIDS suf­fer­ers ac­cess to life-ex­tend­ing drugs. Jared Leto, also win­ning an Os­car, is bril­liant as the trans­gen­der drug ad­dict who helps Woodroof over­come his prej­u­dices. Dir: Jean-marc Val­lée 2013, 15, 140min
