Up-and-coming lawyer Tom Hanks is battling AIDS; when he s fired from his prosperous Main Line Philadelphia firm (for trumped-up reasons), he decides to bring suit. The only lawyer who ll take his case: ambulance-chaser Denzel Washington, who doesn t like gays. Well meaning to the nth degree, this mainstream Hollywood look at AIDS and American homophobia succeeds as a tract but falls short as drama. Hanks is terrific in an Oscar-winning performance, but we don t know anything about him, or his lover (Antonio Banderas); his Norman Rockwellian family is (alas) too good to be true. That s the Rev. Robert Castle (subject of Demme s documentary Cousin Bobby) as Hanks father. [description taken from Leonard Maltin s 2000 Movie & Video Guide]
