At the time of its release, Jonathan Demme's Philadelphia was the first big-budget Hollywood film to tackle the medical, political, and social issues of AIDS. Tom Hanks, in his first Academy Award-winning performance, plays Andrew Beckett, a talented lawyer at a stodgy Philadelphia law firm. The homosexual Andrew has contracted AIDS but fears informing his firm about the disease. The firm's senior partner, Charles Wheeler (Jason Robards), assigns Andrew a case involving their most important client. Andrew begins diligently working on the case, but soon the lesions associated with AIDS are visible on his face. Wheeler abruptly removes Andrew from the case and fires him from the firm. Andrew believes he has been fired because of his illness and plans to fight the firm in court. But because of the firm's reputation, no lawyer in Philadelphia will risk handling his case. In desperation, Andrew hires Joe Miller (Denzel Washington), a black lawyer who advertises on television, mainly handling personal injury cases. Miller dislikes homosexuals but agrees to take the case for the money and exposure. As Miller prepares for the courtroom battle against one of the law firm's key litigators, Belinda Conine (Mary Steenburgen), Miller begins to realize the discrimination practiced against Andrew is no different from the discrimination Miller himself has to battle against. The cast also includes Antonio Banderas as Andrew's partner, Joanne Woodward as Andrew's mother, and Stephanie Roth as Joe's wife. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi.

Customer has been confirmed to have purchased the item from Walmart.

I did NOT like the postage I had to pay. I thought it would be free shipping to Walmart Store. Then I did not like the spanish caption translations on the bottom of the movie screen. It is very annoying be be watching the lettering all through the movie. Even though I am Mexican, I can read spanish, but, I wanted the English ONLY version of the movie. I am hoping Walmart can give me this same movie in ENLISH only. I have never had this problem before with no other movie. The shipping and handling is outrageous, it cost as much as the DVD I bought.

This movie was made in 1993. When AIDS / HIV was still a public blemish. It portrays a young enthusiastic lawyer that, very quickly, climbs his way to the top of his law firm. Then find himself being discriminated against by his own bosses and peers, because he is homosexual. Not only was it an excellent movie, it taught some moral and ethical lessons.

This is a really good movie, Denzel Washington and Tom Hanks are the stars of this movie, and they are both good actors especially Denzel. But this movie is emotional and its something to keep you wondering whats the main conclusion, and want to know how it ends. I personally love all the movies they star in. This is not an action movie, but its a little drama. Mostly they were fighting for his rights in court. Its good.
