Best drama of 2013 by far!
It has great story, gives great insight, has some of the best acting of last year!
The story is both touching and horribly eye opening at the same time. It's very much a characther driven story. You follow the HIV diagnosed Ron Woodroof in his very selfish attempt to get the best possible treatment for his disease. But as he finds himself face to face with an environment he previously had only contemt for, he starts to realize that the medical industry is corrupt, wrong and slow. He's battle against the system makes him choose sides and thereby change his view on many things.
There's some documentary ish parts where we get facts about the political system and the medical regulations and the lobby work of the medical industry. Then there's the con part where Ron Woodroof plays the system for his own benefit and last but not leat there's the development of Ron Woodroof. The way he changes view on his old life and on the unvolunterily changes his life takes.
This is a drama just as it should be. Not a lot of feel good, but a truly amazing story of a presumably amazing(somewhat) person...
