‘Finding Forrester’ Movie Summary
Finding Forrester is the Nicholl Award-winning screenplay by Mike Rich. Set in the Projects in the Bronx, New York, Jamal is a black 16-year-old son of a single mother who hangs with his boys, plays hoops on the city playground, and happens to write miraculous works of literary art in his tiny notebooks for nobody to read but himself.
Jamal has taken some tests at school where he is a C student, but his test scores show much potential. Overlooking the young men playing hoops from stories up in an old building is “The Window”: a mysterious old geezer the boys think is anywhere between a demented Mr. Rogers and Charles Manson’s evil twin (if you ask the boys).
One day, the boys dare Jamal to sneak into “The Window”’s house, and bring back proof he was there. Jamal does exactly that but leaves his backpack behind accidentally, including his precious notebooks of writing. A few days pass, and the backpack is thrown down to Jamal as he walks by.read full summary
