In 1985 Dallas, electrician and hustler Ron Woodroof works around the system to help AIDS patients get the medication they need after he is himself diagnosed with the disease.

The 1980’s. A decade famous for various reasons it was a historical hotspot: John Lennon was assassinated, Michael Jackson was King of the World, and the PG-13 rating came into effect in 1984. But in Dallas, with the AIDS virus still ongoing both in terms of the virus spreading and medicine still trying find a cure, the name of Ron Woodruff came to prominence, as did the tragic first deaths recorded in the Us.

Woodruff (Matthew McConaughey) was diagnosed in 1985, and was given a month to live. Shocked by the news, but not wholly surprised »
