Rarely are movies, after watching them, slightly changed Outlook on life and priorities. To such an interesting experience this pattern

16-year-old black guy Jamal Wallace lives with her mother of the Bronx, new York. The young man is great in basketball, but it not all understand how it may seem on first glance. Jamal is extraordinarily erudite, and spends his free time with creativity — he writes the work. Exactly Jamal manages to get through and even become the best friend old recluse and one of the greatest writers of the twentieth century William Forrester. After forty years of abandoned of the world, a man finds a companion who helps him out people, in return teaching the boy the finer points of writing. The film develops slowly and steadily, however, after the second stage begin to experience the strongest interest in what happens next. This picture is the topic of one of the many facets of the human "I". Especially captures the story of the friendship of very different people, but people creative and gifted. Sir Sean Connery has created amazing in its depth and the viewer's interest to it, the image, and the young actor Rob brown brought the young creative nature.

Great creative film that thanked the attentive viewer as its inspiration, allowing not only to enjoy the highly artistic movie, but and to review goals and priorities.

Loneliness. In every person's life there are moments when I want to be alone, pushing from the whole everyday bustle and problems of a personal nature and the murderous complexity of earthly existence. In psychological dictionary, such symptoms fall under the term "depression" — the oppressed mental condition characterized by negative emotional background, change the motivational and cognitive spheres, and well as the General passivity of behavior. In this time period, people carefully considering all their actions, trying to find the meaning in life and to understand why, in the end, so ruthlessly cruel outside world. Questions are growing in geometric progression, and the answers are in the best, zero.

Depression — phenomenon so and scary, because it is, as and all our life has come to an end. Scary another — time; sometimes, it oppressed state of the human psyche can last for several decades, but and more than half — life, destroying the fate and destroying all hope.

William Forrester — talent God. Novelist, who has written imagine the brightest trace in the literature of the twentieth century. To write a novel that would become a classic work of modern times — the goal of every writer. William Forrester did it on the first attempt. For her debut work of the young Scot was awarded the Pulitzer prize, his the book became a standard reference for many people never out of fashion. After such a fabulous start, a successful career already almost assured. Every fan of Forrester is waiting for the immediate continuation of the Banquet, it is as at least the second novel of his idol. But as it turned out, I had to wait over forty years...

Jamal Wallace — regular kid living in a quarter of the Bronx. He plays perfectly basketball is living a normal teenage life — communicates with friends, regularly attends the matches of your favorite team and studying in high school. School I mentioned in last but not least, because at this point, I want to stay for details.

Well, what level of education can give school to put it mildly, not the most prestigious district of new — York? The answer is obvious a — at best, slightly above average. If you want to achieve something significant, you need to give studies a lot of time. This is Jamal and does : if you roll a spare moment, he will definitely dedicate myself to reading. Besides, the guy and himself very seriously interested in writing your own prose works, and it is it is very good. But the problem is Jamal is that he buries his talent in the grave, because he was hiding his literary ability, that not stand out on the rest of the students. Why? Well, I guess, afraid to receive the mark of a perfectionist, which usually reward their teenagers are too smart peers. And maybe Jamal would continue to destroy your gift, if according to His will Majesty of the Case, destiny is not brought the young Wallace with a hermit Forrester, long-lost to life all interest.

It is difficult to overestimate the the place that took each of them of each other's lives. They have become real friends in spite of significant difference in age. They overcame external fears and managed to find myself in this world, who first and who again. Yes there to speak for a few weeks, Wallace and Forrester had turned into an integral part in life and the fate of each other.

Gus van Saint, considered one of the independent Directors in the United States, after the triumphal "Good will hunting" returns to two and removes adhering to all the canons of his style is clever and easy pattern "finding Forrester".

The film looks very easy, it is it can be safely applied status easily looking film, despite that in the storyline, sharp turns of events are not expected.

Catchy moments in it, it is cleared is identical to the same mentioned the"Good will hunting", and especially the latest work of Director "Harvey milk" all same easy music support, neat camera work.
