During filming, it was discovered that Sean Connery could not type. When you see Forrester's hands on the keys, they are someone else's hands. See more »
In the basketball championship game played at Madison Square Garden, the three point lines are clearly NBA distance, but in high school competition, the distance of the lines should be about four feet closer to the basket. See more »
September 2004.... While walking through the aisles of Blockbuster in search of films my wife and I may have missed through the years, we stumbled on "Finding Forrester". I had a slight recollection of a recommendation from a friend some time ago. In a nutshell, we really enjoyed this film. Both main characters are charming and convincing. The story makes you think and is clever. If you liked "Good Will Hunting" you will probably like this movie too, since it has a similar flavor to it. Though the film is 4 years old, the story is timeless and worth watching. Enjoy, Jimmy
