A film about love, and ignorance, and compassion, and prejudice.
This movie will tear your heart in two. Yet, this is how the heart grows.
Tom Hank's vulnerable character's determination to be a human being with dignity even in the face of a world, and his own body, being at war with him . . . is powerful.
Denzel Washington's character's evolution, seeing the world and another human being beyond the cardboard cut outs that prejudice is built upon . . . is so real and uncontrived, that he brings us along with him in his evolution.
Once in a great while a film comes along that leaves us truly changed by the experience, and Philadelphia is one of them.
