Finding Forrester

The movie "Finding Forrester" was a good, quality movie with a great theme and moral. In this movie Jamal, an African American basketball player and student, meets a famous old writer named William Forrester through a dare. Little do they know when they first meet what a great difference they would each eventually make for each other. William is the first to help Jamal by helping him in his writing. Jamal is a great writer but just doesn't know it yet. William helps Jamal find himself in his writing, and Jamal prospers into quite a good writer. The help didn't really stop there either. Jamal would tell William all about his day and how it went. Forrester would then offer his help and advice and helped Jamal with many aspects of his life. Forrester has a big problem of his own though. He will not leave the premises of his own little apartment. He doesn't leave for anything, he has all his groceries and everything else he needs delivered to him, and his telephone ringer has been turned off for over six months. Jamal actually gets him to leave for William's birthday and Forrester ends up having a good time. Jamal eventually wakes up something in Forrester that makes him decide he needs to get out and go see his family. Along with the story line of them helping each other it touches a little bit on race. The movie did a great job portraying some quality morals.
