PHILADELPHIA
1993, Sony Repertory, 125 min, USA, Dir: Jonathan Demme

In one of the first mainstream Hollywood films to deal with AIDS, Tom Hanks stars as a young attorney suffering from the disease who must retain a small-time lawyer (Denzel Washington) to lead a wrongful termination suit against his former employer. This acclaimed drama costars Jason Robards, Mary Steenburgen, Antonio Banderas and Joanne Woodward, and earned Oscars for Hanks' moving performance and Bruce Springsteen's original song "Streets of Philadelphia."


35 mm!

BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN
2005, Focus Features, 134 min, USA, Dir: Ang Lee

From director Ang Lee comes an epic American love story adapted from an Annie Proulx short story by Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana (who, like Lee, earned Oscars for their work here). Set against the sweeping vistas of Wyoming and Texas, the film tells the story of two young men - ranch-hand Ennis Del Mar (Heath Ledger) and rodeo cowboy Jack Twist (Jake Gyllenhaal) who meet in the summer of 1963, and unexpectedly forge a lifelong connection, one whose complications, joys, and tragedies provide a testament to the endurance and power of love.
