Dallas Buyers Club has finally premiered in the UK after months of anticipation, meaning the release of Matthew Mcconaughey's 1980s drama is only just around the corner. It may have been a grey and dismal evening in London but the Dallas cast at least made sure the stars were out.

The movie stars McConaughey as electrician and hustler Ron Woodroof who is diagnosed as HIV-positive. The homophobic Woodroof is initially incredulous, as he believes that it's only a disease that gay people can contract. However, he soon realises that his only way to outlive the doctors' predicted 30 day survival for him is to smuggle alternative and unofficial treatments in from Mexico.

Along the way, he meets the also HIV diagnosed transvestite Rayon (Leto) who shares his drive for life and entrepreneurial spirit and who helps Ron set up the wildly popular, pay-monthly 'Dallas Buyers Club' for HIV-positive people to get the supplies they need.

In all, Dallas Buyers Club has been nominated for six Oscars and looks set on a trajectory to pick up at least most of those awards, which include Best Picture, Lead Actor for McConaughey and Supporting Actor for Leto. Though, as ever this season, the movie is up against the stiff competition of 12 Years A Slave, Gravity, American Hustle and The Wolf of Wall Street, the Academy Awards may just be charmed by the affecting and darkly funny HIV drama.

Already, the movie has been extraordinarily well-represented in the awards shows leading up to March's Oscars, having most notably scooped the corresponding best lead and best supporting actor prizes at the Golden Globes, the Screen Actors Guild Awards and the Phoenix, Nevada and New York critics societies.

Speaking on The Radio 1 Breakfast Show with Nick Grimshaw yesterday morning, Leto was enthusiastic about all the awards he has picked up so far. "I don't want to sound like a jerk right now but someone told me yesterday that I've won over 30 awards for it already. I didn't even know there were 30 awards to win," he said, adding "The big ones were the Golden Globe and the SAG award recently . it's been great."

Dallas Buyers Club will be released in the UK on the 7th February.
