Original movie costumes from Dallas Buyers Club on display...

In Dallas Buyers Club, Matthew McConaughey stars as the real-life Texas electrician 'Ron Woodroof', who after being diagnosed with HIV in 1986 battled with the medical establishment and pharmaceutical companies, and searched for alternative ways to help his fellow HIV-positive patients to get access to the drugs and help they needed.

When he was diagnosed with HIV, the drug addict heterosexual cowboy and homophobe, Ron Woodroof, was given 30 days to live. Prescribed the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved AZT, the only legal drug available at the time in the U.S., Ron was brought to the brink of death.

To survive he smuggled anti-viral medications from all over the world unavailable in America, and with the help of his sympathetic doctor, 'Eve Saks' (Jennifer Garner), and a fellow AIDS patient, 'Rayon' (Jared Leto), he established the Dallas Buyers Club, providing paying members with these alternative life-prolonging treatments.

Jennifer Garner plays a friendly Doctor who helps Ron and these are her hospital scrubs from the movie, whilst Jared Leto who has been receiving early Oscar buzz along with Matthew McConaughey, plays the transgender character 'Rayon' and wears this outfit in the 80's based film.

Both McConaughey and Leto lost considerable weight to convincingly portray their HIV-positive status in the film.
