Jonathan Demme Amerika Serikat, 1993

Daniel S.'s rating of the film Philadelphia

**1/2. Social/Court movie. After 120 minutes, Tom wins. And dies. Such films are necessary but they're so quickly no longer topical that people soon remember only their titles and forget their content. In 1994, everybody had to see it and I missed it then and in 2018, nobody remembers it, except maybe for the Bruce Springsteen title song, and I stumbled on it tonight by chance. Already forgotten.
