Directed by Jonathan Demme | 1993

With Tom Hanks, Denzel Washington, Jason Robards

Demme’s empathic worldview informs the first major studio film to tackle the AIDS crisis. Tom Hanks received the first of back-to-back Oscars for his powerful portrayal of a gay lawyer who, after being fired from his firm because of his HIV-positive status, joins forces with a homophobic attorney (Washington) to take his wrongful termination suit to court. Though time may have dulled the impact of its message, Philadelphia remains a sincerely moving human drama.
