Star Apps: Jared Leto
The most coveted phone today (at least for iOS users) is undoubtedly the iPhone 5S gold (I just ordered mine, and it’s on three weeks’ back order!). The most coveted award in Hollywood today remains that gold-plated Oscar. While actor and Thirty Seconds to Mars front man Jared Leto doesn’t have either, that’ll certainly change in a few months. I predict a Best Supporting Actor win in his future for his credible, Gotham Independent Film Award-winning portrayal of HIV-positive transgender woman Rayon in “Dallas Buyers Club.”
Out November 1 in limited release and November 10 in wide release, the film follows real-life rodeo cowboy Ron Woodroof (Matthew McConaughey) from his 30-days-to-live AIDS diagnosis in 1985 to his establishing a revolutionary buyer’s club (along with Rayon) where alternative, unsanctioned treatments are made available to anyone with a membership fee. “Dallas Buyers Club” may be a medical drama, but don’t let that dissuade you from seeing it, because it offers something for everyone. Romance enthusiasts will surely enjoy the love triangle of sorts between Woodroof, Rayon, and Dr. Eve Saks (Jennifer Garner). For action aficionados, there are a couple of fight scenes, but the greatest battle is the one to survive against the odds.
