Movie Reviews

Suite101.com - 10/10 by Nick Rogers Lost in "Forrester's" dismissal is appreciation for its relatively piss-and-vinegar approach to the act of creating fiction. Jazzy, classicist and a bit meta, the film's unexpectedly urbane quirks resemble Jonathan Demme films at their mainstream best.
Planet Sick-Boy - 10/10 by Jon Popick Newcomer Brown steals the show as the jaded teen whose life is altered by a chance encounter.
ReelTalk Movie Reviews - 10/10 by Betty Jo Tucker Although it's difficult to imagine writing as a dramatic activity, Connery makes it seem so in the challenging role of a reclusive novelist mentoring a gifted student.
Portland Oregonian - 9/10 by Kim Morgan Written, acted and directed so intelligently that it stands out from the pack, and is guaranteed to give you the warm glow of holiday movies past -- the kind that celebrated faith in human potential and the value of hard work.
Hollywood Reporter - 8/10 by Kirk Honeycutt When either or both [Connery and Brown] are on screen, you can almost forget that these entertaining performances serve such a pat, predictable story.
Moviola - 8/10 by Jorge Avila Andrade Mostrando una entrañable historia del alumno-maestro, el filme de Van Sant se convierte en una placentera experiencia fílmica
Lawrence Journal-World - 8/10 by Dan Lybarger Director Gus Van Sant, who helmed "Good Will Hunting," imbues the new film with just enough stylish touches to keep it from feeling stale or rote.
USA Today - 8/10 by Mike Clark One can't underestimate the appeal of any movie constructed around Sean Connery's charm.
Baltimore Sun - 8/10 by Cheryl Lu-Lien Tan The scenes between the old man and the teenager are at the heart of the movie, and it's a pleasure to watch the rapport between Connery, in his 50th year of acting, and Brown, in his first role.
AboutFilm.com - 8/10 by Carlo Cavagna To dismiss Finding Forrester as just a rehash of Good Will Hunting is not entirely fair.
Seattle Times - 8/10 by Doug Kim An enjoyable film, made more so by the performances ... and by dozens of thoughtful touches like Bill Frisell's delicate score.
Chicago Sun-Times - 8/10 by Roger Ebert Movies about writers are notoriously hard to do, since writing by its nature is not cinematic. Finding Forrester evades that problem by giving us a man who wrote one good novel a long time ago, and now writes no more.
