Top 1: Dallas Buyers Club
Dallas Buyers Club is a 2013 American biographical drama film, directed by Jean-Marc Vallée and written by Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack. The film mainly portrays a story about an electrician called Ron Woodroof who is diagnosed with AIDS and given 30 days to live. He fights his disease and outlives the 30 days allotted to him, dying some 7 years later. When Ron is diagnosed as being HIV positive, he finds himself ostracized by family and friends, gets fired from his job, and is eventually evicted from his home. The film won the Best Actor in a Leading Role for Matthew McConaughey who played Ron Woodroof and the Best Actor in a Supporting Role for Jared Leto.
Top 2: Philadelphia
Philadelphia was a 1993 American drama film and one of the first mainstream Hollywood films to acknowledge HIV/AIDS, homosexuality, and homophobia. The film is about a senior associate who is subsequently fired because of his AIDS diagnosis. Finally, the jury votes in his favor, awarding him back pay, damages for pain and suffering, and punitive damages totaling more than $5 million. Philadelphia won Tom Hanks the Academy Awards for Best Actor in a Leading Role and Best Original Song (Bruce Springsteen for "Streets of Philadelphia"). Tom Hanks also won the Silver Bear for Best Actor at the 44th Berlin International Film Festival.
Top 3: Angels in America
Angels in America was the most-watched made-for-cable film in 2003. It revolves around six disparate New Yorkers whose lives intersect. At its core, it has the fantastical story of Prior Walter, a gay man dying of AIDS who is visited by an angel. In 2006, Seattle Times listed the series among the "Best of the filmed AIDS portrayals" on the 25th anniversary of AIDS.
