Andrew Beckett, a gay lawyer infected with AIDS, is fired from his conservative law firm in fear that they might contract AIDS from him. After Andrew is fired, in a last attempt for peace, he sues his former law firm with the help of a homophobic lawyer, Joe Miller. During the court battle, Miller sees that Beckett is no different than anyone else on the gritty streets of the city of brotherly love, sheds his homophobia and helps Beckett with his case before AIDS overcomes him.

There is a moment in the film in which I awaited as a

Their performance is monumental. The film is an episode of "The Practice"
And not necessarily one of the best but if I am too happy I
Put "Philadelphia". Never fails to bring tears to the eyes. I
Dear Hanks in part, because he believed so completely. The
Casting Joanne Woodward is a stroke of genius. What extraordinary
Actress. His brief but much to be perfect, moving, beautiful portrait
adds layers and layers to his character Hanks. We
complete our understanding of him because of it. Denzel Washington is great fun to watch and
is as good as I have not warmed to him. There
One thing confuses me. Convincing in "Training Day"
Shortly convincing in "The Preacher's Wife" Flags is beautiful, even if
Hard to imagine a "Law of Desire" scene with Tom Hanks .
I am sure that a little more clarity about their relationship could have raised this
good movie in an immense, but probably would not have much money
Done. I am not sure if I made myself clear, I am
recommend the film. Soy, the hesitation is all mine. They do not pay attention.
Hanks at his best phenomenal, Joanne Woodward and Bruce Springsteen. From
then recommend it.
Jonathan Demme's "Philadelphia" throws us into a world of pain and
Raw reality is that few in the mainstream cinema. The vast
idea that a film would be so blatantly on AIDS and the difficulty of
Lesbian, led by the director of "The Silence of the Lambs,"
Actor in "Big" and the guy who played Malcolm X, is astonishing.
AIDS is a reality and homophobia is an unpleasant truth that pervades our
"United States of America, as well as in the rest of the world. At the time
that this movie was released (1993), USA
Found solace in the idea that AIDS and homosexuality were brothers dirty in a remote
Family. By placing the film in the "City of Brotherly Love", recruitment
Bruce Springsteen to sing the song and the title with a
arrival of star Tom Hanks, director Jonathan Demme wisely prepared an ignoramus
America of our first, uninhibited look at the face of AIDS.
Tom Hanks embodies its role in a performance worthy of Oscar, allowing
To see how his lovely and lively Andrew Beckett
deteriorate before our eyes. Tom Hanks and writers took to the task difficult and controversial barrier
Upset game of "gay" and character
Placement of the "straight" at the hearing that different world. Stereotypes
are mostly evaded on the script with a few "pet" gay and drag
Queens. These scenes are few, but they are also a reality. Many
Christmas party I had attended the same crowd ( "fems" and drag queens)
mixture. The other, slightly annoying factor in this movie is that the
Writers inform us squeaky-clean gay Andrew Beckett contracts AIDS
In a porno theater in a strange anonymous, while in a committed relationship
. This makes me angry because I wanted a fair victim, not
Impuro a victim. However, as time has passed and I have had the opportunity to work with many
AIDS victims, whether it is male or female, gay or straight
, I have seen that this is also a reality regrettable. No one is perfect
(gay or straight, male or female) and mistakes are often
. They are often costly mistakes. This is a painful truth, but
However, it is a truth. In this, as Mr Tom Hanks Beckett, brilliantly
AIDS gave an honest face to a distant America.
Denzel Washington, on the other hand, allows an American
Relatable character, one of whose shoes we fit in the previous one. Denzel's
Views of homosexuality were (and still are) the common place in America
Psyche and their reactions to AIDS are understandable to the average
hearing. However, everyone in the drama of it all brought a message home.
Demme address style is not surprising that warmly weaves a tale
Without flashy shots or fantasy cuts. At times, the film borders on
Preachy, but, as always, is the story of Demme that captures the public
His spirit that makes us in history, its actors and its direction
gives the film honesty. This film is highly recommended if
not for the big, but act for fans of a great story.
