Those judging this film as oscar bait are forgetting, or were perhaps not old enough at the time to have realized, how much this film did to bring awareness to AIDS and to take off some of the negative stigma surrounding the disease. I don't think this was a perfect execution or a completely guileless production, but I do believe the effort was genuinely inspired.
The song in the final scene absolutely kills. A rare tear-up for me.
That ending completely destroyed me
Memorable performance by Tom Hanks.
