Philadelphia 1993

From Amazon: Philadelphia wasn't the first movie about AIDS (it followed such worthy independent films as Parting Glances and Longtime Companion), but it was the first Hollywood studio picture to take AIDS as its primary subject. In that sense, Philadelphia is a historically important film. As such, it's worth remembering that director Jonathan Demme (Melvin and Howard, Something Wild, The Silence of the Lambs) wasn't interested in preaching to the converted; he set out to make a film that would connect with a mainstream audience.

Philadelphia Movie Review by Valerie (12/31/2006)

Philadelphia is perhaps a film that will mandatorily make you drop a few tears. But it's not a sappy flick filled with intentionally sad moments, it's a serious drama that is very powerful and touching.
