    Hailed as a landmark film that dazzles with deep emotion and exceptional acting, PHILADELPHIA stars Academy Award winners Tom Hanks (Best Actor in a Leading Role, 1994, Forrest Gump, and Best Actor, 1993, Philadelphia) and Denzel Washington (Best Actor, 2002, Training Day) as two competing lawyers who join forces to sue a prestigious law firm for AIDS discrimination. As their unlikely friendship develops, their courage overcomes the prejudice and corruption of their powerful adversaries.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but hardly, great... "Philadelphia" is hardly a landmark film. Dealing with sensitive issues including AIDS, discrimination, the law and court-room justice, this film saw Hanks (a very over-rated actor) receive his first Academy Award. Sentimental and didactic the film's best performance comes from Washington. Its a good film but not as searing as some critics would have you believe. In a word, pedestrian.
