In addition to App of the week, every Thursday Apple chooses a Movie of the week, whose purchase is only $ 3. The title selected this time was Philadelphia, with Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington.
Check out his trailer:
Here's what Apple says about the movie:
This passionate feature by Jonathan Demme, released in 1993, paved the way for films such as "Dallas Shopping Club" and was one of the first films on the Hollywood commercial circuit to address the AIDS problem. Ron Nyswaner's script is strong and moving, and helped to change public opinion about the disease. Inspired by a real story, the feature tells the story of a New York lawyer who sues the law firm where he worked and wins the case for unlawful dismissal in a landmark AIDS discrimination case. Tom Hanks gives an acting show in one of his most intense and disconcerting performances. Denzel Washington gives life to the lawyer who has to overcome his own prejudices. Bruce Springsteen's touching song “Streets of Philadelphia” won the Oscar for Best Original Song.
As usual, our reader Renato Alan Promenzio (@tripalavra), who is a cardholder, was also willing to send us a personalized comment about the film:
THE Movie of the week exceptional, not only because it is directed by a director highly specialized in outstanding films and who knows how to lead his cast like few others. See example The Silence of the Innocents, which marked the time and generated three other films. This plot based on real facts, which addresses delicate and important themes, was produced and made simultaneously with its development because it was important that the protagonist lost weight during the film in order to be extremely realistic. Another crucial point was the choice of the soundtrack, which won the Oscar and other major awards through its theme song.
