Review
Jamal Wallace is a gifted athlete with a gifted mind, from the poor side of the tracks he is offered a scholarship at one of the country's most prestigious schools. Jamal also meets the obsessively reclusive William Forrester, a Pulitzer prize winning novelist and the unlikely pair gradually form a close bond that begins through writing and develops into friendship, one discovering what he is truly capable of and the other realising what he has almost lost. Finding Forrester is an enjoyable drama and Sean Connery has pretty much cornered the market in 'cantankerous old gits, with a heart of gold'.
