It looks like Matthew McConaughey has transcended his checkered past of trashy rom-coms to become a real dramatic actor. I thought Matthew Modine was the better of the two Matthews! Well, perhaps that’s no longer true. McConaughey is great as a red neck oil rig engineer diagnosed with AIDS in the early days when it was still thought of as a “gay disease.” He befriends a trans lady (Jared Leto) and goes into business importing HIV meds that haven’t been approved by the soulless bureaucrats at the FDA.  They Hollywood-ized the real story a bit too much, inventing the Leto character as well as Jennifer Garner’s earnest-but-attractive doctor character.  But the movie is intriguing and well made.  I would suggest watching the documentary How to Survive a Plague instead, but this is a strong Worth checking out.
