Dallas Buyers Club – An interview with Jared Leto
Texas, 1985. Ron is a cowboy with an alcohol, sex and drug lifestyle who learns he is HIV-positive and has one month to live. To survive, he goes to Mexico in search of drugs that are more effective against AIDS but that are not approved in the US. Along the way, he meets fellow AIDS patient Rayon, a transsexual, and together they create the “Dallas Buyers Club” to smuggle illegal medicines in the US. This is the story of the film directed by Jean-Marc Vallée, with two amazing main characters: Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto who, for their roles of Ron and Rayon, completely transformed themselves, giving a truly remarkable performance. We met Jared Leto in Rome, during the Rome Film Festival.
