Finding Forrester Navigation menu VideoFINDING FORRESTER Trailer
The message of the film is good and moral, but it was wonderful to see a serious film staring a young black person that does not hit you over the head with messages of racial tolerance.
One of the surprises in the film is the great soundtrack. It is mostly Jazz songs from Miles Davis and others, which seems well suited to the mood of the movie and to the setting, another well done part of the film.
The final song, a medley of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow" and "What a Wonderful World" is great. I was happy that this movie had refused to do what many recent movies have done in capitalizing on a soundtrack and trying to use or create hit pop songs in a movie.
It also stays away from sappy and unnecessary orchestra music that is often used to try to create emotion in the audience. This movie does not need to resort to tricks like this in order to make you feel for the characters.
Another happy surprise is a cameo from Matt Damon. The acting is wonderful, particularly from the experienced Sean Connery, playing the title character, and from newcomer Robert Brown, as Jamal.
Even the more minor parts in the film, such as Jamal's older brother, played by Busta Rhymes, and Jamal's friends and teachers are well-acted.
Anna Paquin is well suited for her role as Claire, a rich girl from the prep school that Jamal transfers to. The two seem to make a connection, but a romantic subplot is not pursued very far in the film.
I found this a refreshing change, and one of the factors that kept the movie from being too predictable, as well as much more realistic.
Real life romances do not usually happen the way they often do in films. A disappointment was the character played by F.
Murray Abraham. Although well acted, there is a complete lack of character development, and the teacher-that-gives-the-brilliant-student-a-hard-time stereotype is hard to ignore.
Despite this one shortcoming, this is an excellent film. As the film ended and the credits began to roll, I noticed that no one in the theater got up to leave, as is usually the case in theaters.
The audience remained seated until the credits and music had finished, and the lights came back on. It is just that kind of a movie. I would defiantly recommend it to anyone wishing to see a mature and thought-provoking film that is entertaining and enjoyable to watch, and will leave you feeling inspired.

Edit Cast Cast overview, first billed only: Sean Connery Forrester Rob Brown Jamal F. Jamal learns that Forrester is the Pulitzer Prize -winning author of a famous novel, Avalon Landing , but never published another book.
They bond as Forrester gives Jamal his own work to rewrite, on the condition that their writing never leaves the apartment.

He convinces Forrester to attend a game with him at Madison Square Garden , but they become separated and Forrester, overwhelmed by the crowd, has an anxiety attack.
He tells Jamal about his brother's trauma returning home from World War II — the basis for his book — and how Forrester's indirect role in his death, followed by the deaths of their parents, led him to become a recluse.
Still suspicious, Crawford forces Jamal to complete his next assignment in his presence. He is called before Crawford and the school board, who reveal that Forrester had published the article upon which Jamal based his essay.
Crawford demands he read a letter of apology to his classmates, but Jamal refuses, endangering his scholarship.
