This is a dramatic, more "independent" movie that probably isn't at many theaters. Matthew McConaughey did a great job and Jared Leto deserves an oscar for this. The movie deals with HIV/AIDS in the mid 1980's and is very, very good.
I saw this over the weekend. I thought it was really good, with a great performance by McConaughey. We had previously watched the documentary How To Survive A Plague, and I'm glad we did. I think I appreciated DBC more by having a bit of understanding of what was going on then in terms of the government's response to HIV/AIDS. Well worth seeing.
One of my friends asked me if it was on DVD yet. I was like "It JUST OPENED." but I don't blame her, as I've been trying to convince her to take her nieces and nephew, but she (wisely) doesn't want to drag 3 kids to the movies.
