Contains the films CHARLIE WILSON'S WAR, PHILADELPHIA, and APOLLO 13, all starring Tom Hanks.
CHARLIE WILSON'S WAR is set in the early '80s, where Texas congressman Charlie Wilson's attention is caught by a report from a war-torn Afghanistan. As Soviets invade the country, the Afghans lack the money and technology to defend themselves. Together with CIA Agent Gust Avrakotos, Charlie begins a secret war where he must unite Israel, Pakistan, Egypt, and America to defeat the Soviets.
In PHILADELPHIA, Tom Hanks plays Andrew Beckett, a hotshot Philadelphia lawyer who has been keeping his homosexuality, and his AIDS, hidden from his conservative bosses. When he's suddenly and inexplicably fired, Andrew suspects AIDS is the reason, and is determined to fight in court, even as he is losing his other battle, against the disease. Beckett hires attorney Joe Miller (Denzel Washington) to represent him, but the lawyer must first overcome his own homophobia and fears.
APOLLO 13 is a vividly rendered dramatisation of Apollo 13's true-life brush with disaster on the way to the Moon in 1971. This mesmerising film combines computer graphics, archive footage and seamless special effects to recreate the adrenalised odyssey of Astronauts Jim Lovell, Fred Haise and Jack Swigert who battled astronomical odds to make it back to Earth.
