'The Dallas Buyers Club' Trailer: Is This Matthew McConaughey's Oscar-Winning Performance?

Aug 27, 2013

 

The trailer has arrived for Jean-Marc Vallée's drama The Dallas Buyers Club about real-life Texan Ron Woodroof (played by Matthew McConaughey). The story follows the hard-living electrician's battle with his HIV-positive diagnosis during the 1980s and the lack of treatment for patients available at that time. In order to survive, Woodroof smuggled medication from across the globe. Other AIDS and HIV patients sought help from Woodroof's alternative-medicine cabinet, which transformed into something dubbed the "Dallas Buyers Club."

Jennifer Garner stars as Woodroof's doctor and an emaciated Jared Leto stars as Rayon, the transsexual woman who helped Woodroof execute his plan. McConaughey and Leto lost a ton of weight for their roles (almost 70 pounds, collectively). Now that the sensational headlines about skeletal actors have faded, and we have some actual footage to look at, it seems that we're in for an emotional roller-coaster with several intense performances. What say you? Is there an award for McConaughey in the future?
