"In a forgotten corner of the Bronx, something hidden is about to be found, someone legendary is about to be discovered, and something extraordinary is about to take place..."Finding Forrester is a movie from 2000 about a boy from a poor neighborhood in the Bronx with talents for writing and basketball. When his high test scores and athletic skills get him a scholarship to a prestigious prep school, he meets a famously reclusive author who helps lead him to success.It was Gus Van Sant's more proper follow-up to Good Will Hunting (after his poorly-regarded Psycho remake) and his last mainstream Hollywood film.
