Philadelphia – 8/10.


A man with AIDS hires a homophobic lawyer to fight his case for wrongful dismissal. An Oscar winning and Oscar deserving turn from Tom Hanks and a great early performance from Denzel Washington drive this powerful tale. The emotional scenes are handled tastefully and the courtroom scenes are packed with drama. Maybe not quite deserving of its reputation but a good film never the less.
