Matthew McConaughey and Jared Leto give the best performances of their careers in this incredibly moving true story that shines a light on a turbulent and horrific time in American history. Jean-Marc Vallee's clear eyed and sensitive direction worked in perfect tandem with Craig Borten and Melisa Wallack's warts-and-all screenplay, with McConaughey boldly embracing all aspects of his character's flaws and traits. Here's a film that really is about someone who changed as a human being, for the better, and did something to change the lives of those around him.
