Philadelphia, 1993

This movie inspired us to tread equally for people who had disadvantage physically, and if we can’t do it, Law will force us to do so

A lawyer named Andy Beckett had AIDS and when his disease revealed he was fired from his company for neglecting law document. He sued his company for discrimination, because he knew that his company fired him because of AIDS and the fact that he is gay. Only one lawyer, Joe Miller, wants to represent him.

The movie is really good. Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington played their character so great (Hanks was win for best actor in leading role for this movie). The scene is tell us that being sick is not reduce our ability in work. This disease could happen to anyone. The ending maybe obvious for us but the way it tells that make difference for this movie. I like the chemistry between Hanks and Washington. Andy was vulnarable, soft, intelligent, and loveable played excellent by Hanks. Other side, Miller is outspoken, smart, try to get rid from gay people is played really good by Washington. I couldn’t imagine if Andy Backett will play by other actor. Only Hanks in my mind that could do the best work. This movie is directed by Jonathan Demme ( Silence of the Lamb) and he did a good job in this movie.

Affecting moments are : 1. when Andy and his lover, Miquel danced at the costume party. They love each other, like love between man and woman. The gesture is so touchy and how Miquel is so afraid of loosing Andy from his grasp hand in Andy shoulder. 2. When the judge ask Andy, if he is a good lawyer or not. Andy said he is an excellent lawyer, because he loves the law. 3. When Andy explained a classic song from Maria Callas with emotion in his face…really ..really good….

This movie inspired us to tread equally for people who had disadvantage physically, and if we can’t do it, Law will force us to do so, like Andy said ” What I love the most about the law? It’s that every now and again – not often, but occasionally – you get to be a part of justice being done. That really is quite a thrill when that happens”

my rate : 8.50
