Philadelphia (WIDESCREEN) - 12

£2.99

Product description

A widescreen presentation. No one would take on a case...until one man was willing to take on the system.

Up-and-coming young lawyer Andrew Beckett (Tom Hanks - 'Apollo 13') has just been fired by his prestigious law firm. They say he hasn't got what it takes. Andrew knows it's because he's got AIDS. Determined to defend his professional reputation, Andrew hires fierce. brilliant personal-injury attorney Joe Miller (Denzel Washington - 'The Pelican Brief') to sue his former employers for wrongful dismissal. Joe is initially reluctant to take on the case. Although he has grown up knowing the pain of prejudice, he's never had to confront his own prejudices against homosexuality and AIDS...until now.

One man is fighting for his reputation. his life and for justice. The other is battling to overcome his own and society's ignorance and fear. Also starring Antonio Banderas, the late Jason Robards and Mary Steenburgen, 'Philadelphia' is one of the most powerful and critically acclaimed movies of the 1990s.

Interactive menus feature choices of multiple language subtitles and chapter selections. This widescreen version is presented in a letterbox widescreen format, preserving the 1:1.85 aspect ration of its original theatrical exhibition. Enhanced for 16:9 widescreen TVs.

DVD and case: DVD EX, case VG.
