DVD Sleuth: Philadelphia Blu-ray Disc Review, 14 May 2013 [cached]
Tom Hanks stars in Philadelphia as Andrew "Andy" Beckett, a successful attorney who works for one of the cities most prestigious law firms. He's just been handed the most important case of his career and despite some health issues, he completes the work on time. Then, Andy's world begins to crumble. He has AIDS and develops visible sores on his face. Meanwhile, his papers on the case go missing and aren't found until the last minute. Because of this second incident, Andy is fired (despite the fact that the case was won).
As the trial begins, it draws a great deal of publicity and everyone wonders, can Andy and Joe win against such a powerful firm?
A very powerful scene where a settlement could not be reached should have been left in the movie, as well as a brief moment where Andy meditates. "Courthouse Protest Footage and Interviews" (4 minutes) offers video footage of the crowd which is seen for only a few moments in the film.
