Dallas Buyers Club

‘A Fantastic Woman’ is the first Oscar-winning film to star a transgender actor in a leading role. Daniela Vega’s performance helped the Chilean drama win best foreign language film at the Academy Awards.
It is exciting to see our stories being told and winning awards, but should we be concerned that transgender people have little involvement in the story telling?

This career about-face fuels the perception that McConaughey has entered a realm untouched by any thespian, ever. Recent chatter places him in the same league as cinema's titans -- Hollywood's Mount Rushmore -- individuals who helped pioneer acting as both a craft and a calling, not merely a profession.
I won't dispute the fine work that McConaughey and Leto did in Dallas Buyers Club, but I can't shake the feeling that their intentions as artists were more about winning Oscars and less about telling the story of people dying from AIDS.
