  • By Valerie Ciliento


Get the inside scoop on this year’s Best Picture contenders with Oscar.com’s new video series, Best Picture Closeup, which features exclusive interviews with the cast and producers of the nine nominated films at L.A.’s Samuel Goldwyn Theater. This week, we spotlight DALLAS BUYERS CLUB.

Best Actor nominee Matthew McConaughey gives us insight into his role as Ron Woodroof, a homophobic man who fights to survive after contracting HIV; and Jennifer Garner talks about playing her role as one of the doctors who treats him. The film, inspired by real-life events, exposes the struggle of people living with AIDS in the 1980s and the underground market of smuggled alternative medication from other countries. Writer Craig Borten and producer Robbie Brenner discuss the making of the film and why it has impacted so many people.
