Finding Forrester review

Jamal Wallace (Rob Brown) befriends writer William Forrester (Sean Connery). It does have the feel of Good Will Hunting and Dead Poets Society. Watch out for a cameo in the senior year of Jamal. Screenplay was heartfelt and smart with quotes: Jamal: "The rest of those who have gone before us cannot steady the unrest of those to follow." Forrester - "There are no reasons! Reasons why some of us live and why some of us don't! Fortunately for you, you have decades to figure that out!" and the letter "You need to know that while I knew so very early that you would realize your dreams, I never imagined I would once again realize my own. Seasons change young man, and while I may have waited until the winter of my life, to see the things I've seen this past year, there is no doubt I would have waited too long, had it not been for you." Nice onscreen chemistry between Brown and Connery. Only knack would be the lack of onscreen time for the talented Paquin and how one of the faculty can be so cruel. Finding Forrester is about friendships, realizing your dreams and support.
