    I saw this movie last weekend and it is one of the best movies I have seen in a long while and even better that it is based on a true story. His character has AIDS in the early 80s, is given only 30 days to live and battles the FDA to acquire (smuggle) meds to treat himself and other. Matthew Mcconauhey will win an Oscar for this. I read somewhere he lost 50 lbs to play the part. He looked down right cadaverous in the film. Go see it.

    just saw this last night. Fantastic movie.

    As good as MM was in the movie Jarad Leto stole the show. I had no idea it was him until I saw the credits.

    Exactly how I felt. Amazing work by both guys, especially Leto, and Jennifer Garner did a very fine job herself. Outstanding movie.

    Academy award winner for best picture! Better than The Butler, IMHO.
