Details

Jonathan Demme’s award-winning drama was one of the first mainstream Hollywood films to address America’s attitudes towards HIV/AIDS and homosexuality. Tom Hanks plays Andrew Beckett, a gay, HIV positive lawyer who is fired from his firm when his colleagues fear that they might contract the virus from him. In an attempt to find some peace, he hires lawyer Joe Miller (Denzel Washington) to help sue the firm. Despite Miller’s initial reluctance and homophobia, he slowly begins to see that Beckett shares the same fears, hopes and humanity as anyone else on the streets of Philadelphia.
