Dallas Buyers Club script
Synopsis: In mid-1980s Texas, electrician Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey) is stunned to learn that he has AIDS. Though told that he has just 30 days left to live, Woodroof refuses to give in to despair. He seeks out alternative therapies and smuggles unapproved drugs into the U.S. from wherever he can find them. Woodroof joins forces with a fellow AIDS patient (Jared Leto) and begins selling the treatments to the growing number of people who can't wait for the medical establishment to save them.

RON:

They got hot ladies over there?

T.J.

It’s a Muslim country. You can’t fuck

the women.

RON:

Now that takes me out right there.

The FOREMAN races over to them.

FOREMAN:

Woodroof, there’s been an accident on

platform five. They need an electrician

right away!

10 EXT. DRILL PLATFORM - DAY - LATER 10

A MEXICAN WORKER has his leg caught in the drill. It’s

severed and he’s losing blood fast. Ron walks over.

RON:

Dumb spic. How’d you get your leg in

there?

The guy’s breath is coming in short fast spurts.

RON:

Where’s the ambulance?

FOREMAN:

He’s illegal.

Ron takes his OWN shirt off, rips it in half, kneels down next

to the MEXICAN, wipes some sweat off his brow and ties a

makeshift tourniquet around his leg.
