This film is absolutely incredible. Breath taking performances by Tom Hanks & Denzel Washington. The film is about a Philadelphia lawyer who is suffering from HIV aids. He starts out working for one of the best law firms in the state. When a co worker notices a sore on his forehead, things take a turn for the worse. He is let go from the firm not long after. Reason, loss of a important document that is recovered in time for the case. However he is still fired. He believes it is due to his illness not the lost file. He decides to sue the law firm, and with the help of Denzel's character he makes history with a case based on discrimination against homosexuals. This is a wonderful movie that will make you laugh and cry, and above all reevaluate your own beliefs on alternative lifestyles. I recommend this movie for anyone who wants to see hollywoods finest at the best.
