6 Matthew McConaughey Films You Can Watch on Netflix Right Now
Part of what makes Matthew McConaughey such a great actor to watch is his ability to take on — and excel at — such a wide variety of roles. If you've ever questioned this, a look at his movies available on Netflix right now should convince you otherwise. You can catch his Oscar-winning performance in Dallas Buyers Club, and then move on to his charm and wit in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days before capping off your marathon with his sick dance moves and endless abs in Magic Mike. A bit of depth, am I right? For those and three other options you can find on Netflix, just keep reading.
Dallas Buyers Club
After Ron Woodroof (McConaughey) finds out he has AIDS, he starts bringing experimental drugs across the border to not only stave off his impending death, but help other AIDS patients in need. He teams up with Rayon (Jared Leto) to treat as many AIDS patients as they can.
Free State of Jones
Newton Knight (McConaughey), a poor farmer in Mississippi, forms an antiConfederacy army to revolt during the Civil War. They make it through the war and Knight continues his fight against racism and inequality.
Prospector Kenny Wells (McConaughey) is desperate to mine new deposits of gold, so he works together with geologist Michael Acosta (Édgar Ramírez) to find it in Indonesia. They run into hiccups and politics and money issues along the way to ultimate success — and it all ends with a twist.
How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days
Ad exec Ben Barry (McConaughey) bets his coworkers he can get a woman to fall in love with him in 10 days, but what none of them knows is that the woman he chooses, journalist Andie Anderson (Kate Hudson), is on assignment to drive a man away in 10 days or less.
Dallas (McConaughey) is a strip club owner — and stripper — who loves his life and just wants to own more strip clubs full of attractive dancers. Mike (Channing Tatum) and Adam (Alex Pettyfer) are Dallas's star dancers, and when Mike realizes Dallas has no allegiance to him at all, he leaves his strip club behind.
Reporter Ward Jansen (McConaughey) is writing a story in the 1960s about a man on death row for killing a racist.
