Philadelphia Movie Review: A top lawyer (Tom Hanks) sues his firm as he believes he was unfairly dismissed. The events in the film are similar to the events in the life of attorney Geoffrey Bowers. In 1987, Bowers sued a law firm for wrongful dismissal in one of the first AIDS discrimination cases.
A hard-hitting film on how AIDS was first perceived by people when it first appeared. Tom Hanks is brilliant in the role.
