Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Finding Forrester shows Sean Connery’s diverse talent and unexpectedly turns into a very good watch. The film has an unusual concept that supports itself on a well-written script. Director Gus Van Sant shows his mettle and draws a great deal of entertainment out of a story that could have easily been a failure. Good watch. Don’t miss it.


A seasoned writer befriends a promising young, African/American writer.

Yes. It works especially well for an adult share and provides good after viewing discussion.
