We ordered Finding Forrester from Netflix and watched it last night. I'd forgotten that we'd seen it before. In fact, I forgot almost everything from it. Maybe this is good because I liked it so much that in another few years I can enjoy it all over again without remembering what it was about...again.
I got this blurb about the movie online:
"Because of scoring exceptionaly high on a state wide standardized exam and being an exceptionally good basketball player Jamal Wallace is sent to a prestigious prep school in Manhattan. He soon befriends the reclusive writer, William Forrester. The friendship leads to William to overcome his reclusiveness and for Jamal to overcome the racial prejudices and pursue his true dream - writing."
I was surprised to hear Iz Kamakawiwo'ole on the soundtrack singing Somewhere Over the Rainbow. It's amazing how many times we've heard Iz's rendition in movies. It was also a surprise to see Matt Damon in a cameo.
I really would like to recommend this movie. It left both Art and me feeling really good. I love it when a movie leaves you feeling uplifted.
POSTSCRIPT: Two posts went up today by mistake (mine) so I've moved the other one about the Ladybug to tomorrow. I've saved the comments to add once it goes up also.
