Philadelphia - Trailer

Posted on: June 17, 2005 | Views: 691 | Comment

A black attorney (Denzel Washington) reluctantly decides to represent another attorney (Tom Hanks) who's suing a law firm for releasing him after he develops AIDS.

Jonathan Demme directs this first star-driven vehicle to tell an AIDS-related story. Washington plays Joe Miller, a homophobic small-time attorney who reluctantly decides to represent Andrew Beckett. Beckett (Hanks), who is also an attorney, is suing a prestigious Philadelphia law firm for releasing him without cause, after he has contracted HIV. The result is an acclaimed, emotionally powerful social commentary that takes a hard look at the long-term ramifications of AIDS.
