Philadelphia (1993), widely hailed as Hollywood’s first grand-scale feature film examination of the AIDS crisis, stars Tom Hanks in his Academy Award®-winning performance as Andrew Beckett, a hotshot lawyer well on his way up the corporate ladder. But even as he wins yet another promotion, Andrew is concealing a terrible secret: he is a gay man, suffering from AIDS. When his bosses discover this, he is summarily fired. Andrew summons the strength to fight his own firm, enlisting the aid of a homophobic ambulance-chaser, Joe Miller (Denzel Washington), the only attorney in town who’ll take the case. Superbly directed by Jonathan Demme (The Silence of the Lambs), from a screenplay by Ron Nyswaner, and featuring the Oscar®-winning Bruce Springsteen song, “Streets of Philadelphia.”
