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...

Great filmBy a customer from Oxford , 17 Sep 2010We thoroughly enjoyed this film. Sean Connery as a different type of character was good and the other actors who were new to me were all brilliant.
Quite excellent!!By Airscrew (14 reviews) from Winchester , 29 Apr 2010A harsh but realistic look into inner city life, racism, street peer pressure at school, and the victory of youth, ambition, and literary talent over all of this. Connery on great form sets the backbone for the whole film. Excellent drama, but not one for just relaxing.
Very educational!By Alan from London, England , 16 May 2007Very enjoyable film, dealt with the various issues quite skillfully amongst others, negative stereotyping, class, racism and mixed relationships. It actually stirred the emotions. Finding Forrester is a film that both young, old, black and white will be able to identify with in some way. Very good performances all round, inspirational and a film that shows that we can all learn something from each other despite our varying differences.
A hidden gemBy a customer from London, UK , 21 Apr 2007Imaginative plotline, extremeley well exercised characters, uplifting and life affirming message - this film is a gem. It addresses crucial issues, in a way that never feels didactic - black/white, young/old, engaging with society/alienation and above all: hope. Absolutely wonderful -should be shown in schools across the country!
goodBy a customer from i.o.w , 04 Apr 2007very good story and well worth watching providing you can get past the first 20 minuets or so. slow to start but brilliant film
