Choosing your favourite Tom Hanks movie is a bit like settling on your favourite pick ‘n’ mix sweet; they’re all delightful in their own unique way. In the classic Hanksian genre of ‘normal man battles against insurmountable odds’, Philadelphia may well rank as the very best. Why? Because that seemingly impossible challenge isn’t showing the Nazis what for or making it safely back home from the moon, but winning a wrongful dismissal case on account of his ongoing battle with AIDs. As such, Hanks made an unknown and scary subject heartbreakingly relatable and won a ‘Best Actor’ Oscar in the process.
