'Philadelphia' (1993) - Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington

Tom Hanks has probably never been seen in a bad movie and Denzel Washington also has a great track record. However, Hanks excels himself in this story about a homosexual with AIDS, fired from his job because of his condition. Washington plays the role of the only lawyer willing to take on his case, even though he is himself a homophobe. This film is compelling viewing throughout.
