The world is not always as we see it, there are millions of possibilities at play every day that we do not realise or refuse to witness what can be outside of our sphere of existence. It is a premise that has been used over and over again to great effect, that time, that the ability to see beyond is one of great intrigue and one that Stephen King has used to great effect for over 40 years as one of the pre-eminent writers of the 20th and 21st Century.

A lot has been made of the fact that actor Matthew McConaughey lost an incredible amount of weight to portray foul mouthed, bull riding cowboy, AIDS sufferer Ron Woodruff in the film The Dallas Buyers Club that it almost seems to have detracted from the real point of an exceptionally made film. The redemption of a man from completely unlikeable, homophobic and intolerant person at the start to somebody you would be able to sit down and have a conversation with without wanting to take to task.
