Strange as it might seem now, back in 1993, it was still considered incredibly daring for a Hollywood movie to deal with the issue of HIV and AIDS and the discrimination that those with the disease were facing at the time. In this powerful movie, Tom Hanks plays lawyer Andrew Beckett, who is sacked from his big-league law firm when his bosses learn he has AIDS. At first, it seems he has nowhere to turn for help - until a personal injury lawyer reluctantly agrees to take his case. The result is a moving and important film that is also compelling viewing purely as human drama. PLEASE BE AWARE: After ordering Philadelphia you may receive a disc marked as being a 15 certificate, however, this relates to the extra features on the DVD and not the film itself, which is certified with the BBFC as a 12. Into Film has consulted the BBFC, and their guidance is that as long as a club leader screens only the film (and not the additional features or audio commentaries etc), Philadelphia can be treated as a 12 certificate in a school setting.
