If fans didn’t get a chance to see Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto in their Golden Globe winning performances in Dallas Buyers Club in theaters, now they can take the Oscar nominated drama home. The Blu-ray combo pack of the film arrives in stores today and the bonus features include deleted scenes that got cut from the theatrical version, including this exclusive one below featuring McConaughey’s character trying to celebrate living more than the month he was told he had by his doctor, played by Jennifer Garner.
The inspiring and powerful story was directed by Jean-Marc Vallée and just nominated for six Academy Awards including Best Picture, Best Actor for McConaughey and Best Supporting Actor for Leto. McConaughey plays Ron Woodroof, a Texas cowboy who sees his free-wheeling life overturned when he’s diagnosed as HIV-positive and given 30 days to live. Determined to survive, Woodroof decides to take matters in his own hands by tracking down alternative treatments from all over the world by means both legal and illegal. Leto plays his unlikely ally Rayon who helps establish a hugely successful “buyers’ club” and unites a band of outcasts in a struggle for dignity and acceptance that inspires in ways no one could have imagined. Jennifer Garner, Denis O’Hare, Dallas Roberts and Steve Zahn round out the SAG-nominated ensemble cast.
