There are two great American actors – both equally on the highest rung. Sure, there are lots of others who are pretty good and are way up there, but alone at the top are Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington.
About the film
Washington, like Hanks, seldom missteps when choosing roles. And both are multiple Oscar winners.
They have appeared together just once, Philadelphia (1993); Hanks won Best Actor for that one, and, a year later, again for Forrest Gump (1994, Movie Man No. 33, a ‘+’ in pre-numbering days, a 9 today, Best of Year).
