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.
One Guy's Opinion - 9/10 by Frank Swietek The picture's played with a disarming looseness that makes even its most predictable patches endurable.
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.
Rochester Democrat and Chronicle - 8/10 by Jack Garner At first glance, Gus Van Sant's Finding Forrester seems a retread of his popular Good Will Hunting... However, Finding Forrester offers more than enough additional themes and rich characters to justify the new spin.
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.
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.
Variety - 8/10 by Emanuel Levy Provides a platform for Sean Connery to deliver a definitive, career-summation performance.
Old School Reviews - 8/10 by John A. Nesbit predictable formula film that is quickly forgotten
UK Critic - 8/10 by Ian Waldron-Mantgani Finding Forrester is an easy watch with just enough of a feeling of prestige and respectability about it to please serious moviegoers.
Daily Mail (UK) - 8/10 by Christopher Tookey All signs of intelligent life are sacrificed to Hollywood formula and liberal wish-fulfilment.
