Dallas Buyers Club Added to Film Class

The UTMB Film Class (DERU-4007 and DERU-4051) has updated its required film list to include Dallas Buyers Club (2013). It will replace Philadelphia (1993) in the required film list starting in Period 10. Actors Matthew McConaughey was awarded “Best Actor” and co-star Jared Leto was awarded “Best Supporting Actor” at the 2014 Academy Awards.  Dallas Buyers Club was also nominated for Best Picture. This film realistically depicts Kaposi’s sarcoma and seborrheic dermatitis during the early years of the AIDS epidemic. Interestingly, Tom Hanks also was awarded “Best Actor” for his role in Philadelphia.
