Title: Philadelphia (1993)

Staring: Denzel Washington and Tom Hanks

About: a gay white man (Hanks) who sues his law firm when he is fired after contracting HIV/AIDS. The only lawyer willing to take his case? A black homophobe (Denzel).

Thoughts: an engaging movie with well sculpted performances from the two leads and shades of racial symbolism made bare yet adeptly reversed.
