Wow a must seeBy Nixon from East London , 27 Jul 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]This movie pushes many boundaries, stereotypes and taboos between the young and the old, black and white, the learning and the learned...an experienced veteran (Sean Connery ) and an inexperienced actor (Robert Brown)...This movie is brillant and there are so many lessons to be learnt...It is a must see...

A surprising heat-warming taleBy idris786 (51 reviews) from Halifax, England , 09 Aug 2011I'm not one for watching a film more than once, but would gladly watch this heartwarmer again.
Sean Connery oozed wisdom while playing the 'arrogant recluse'. I have had the pleasure of meeting a 'hidden genius' in my life, and Sean Connery's character reminding me of this person. If only that wisdom could be more readily found.
Worth watching Finding ForresterBy a customer , 07 Aug 2011Fabulous film that we just picked out from a love film list. Would recommend it to everyone as it is a film that would suit all types of people from young to old, male and female.
Punch The Keys For God's Sake!By Richie77777 (274 reviews) from Essex , 05 Jun 2011Basketball, - a slight love interest or at the very least admiration a very close friendship and fulfulling one's dreams are the key themes in this slow moving movie.
There are some similarities with the film Good Will Hunting. For instance when Jamal talks to the BMW driver about the history of BMW.
William Forrester is a reclusive author and initially Jamal is unable to enter into his world : '5000 words and f%$£ off!'
'Jermal whatever we write in this appartment, stays in this appartment, no exceptions.'
'Do you know what people are most afraid of, people they don't understand.'
'The key to a woman's heart is an unexpected gift at an unexpected time.'
'You ain't seen nothing?! - What in hell is a sentence like that?! - When you're in here don't talk like you're out there.'
- 'Women will sleep with you if you write a book?!'
'Women will sleep with you if you write a bad book!'
Good Will Hunting Mark 11By sailonby (113 reviews) from Exeter , 25 Mar 2011It's pretty stereotypical - genius from the wrong side of the tracks given a leg-up by grizzled old recluse. None-the-less, it's enjoyable for the astoundingly excellent performance by Rob Brown.
whiff of cheeseBy roddyb123 (1 review) from UK , 10 Jan 2011There are solid performances and fine location photography here but there is a major whiff of cheese too.
GVS films are often surprising, overtly stylised, sometimes shocking, devoid of sentiment and usually very watchable (see Last Days,Mala Noche & Paranoid Park)
None of them seem as mainstream as this (GWH being the exception)
The DVD cover says it all.
