Critic Reviews of "Finding Forrester"Chicago ReaderMarch 25, 2008
If director Gus Van Sant had always been a hack it wouldn't matter so much, but personally I find this form of licking the audience's cheeks like an obsequious puppy deeply offensive.Time OutJanuary 26, 2006
The leaden screenplay can be fingered for many of the film's faults. But what happened to the off-kilter film-maker last seen at work in To Die For?Globe and MailMarch 19, 2002
An anti-intellectual film about the intellectual life.Rolling StoneFebruary 06, 2001

A rare find.Philadelphia InquirerJanuary 11, 2001
A rewarding exploration of the knotty and often contentious relationship between teacher and protege. Its chief pleasure is the master class in the art of acting delivered by Sean Connery.Old School ReviewsJuly 22, 2012
predictable formula film that is quickly forgottenCommon Sense MediaDecember 24, 2010
Quality characters, solid film; OK for ages 14+.Suite101.comSeptember 24, 2010
Lost in "Forrester's" dismissal is appreciation for its relatively piss-and-vinegar approach to the act of creating fiction. Jazzy, classicist and a bit meta, the film's unexpectedly urbane quirks resemble Jonathan Demme films at their mainstream best.TheMovieReport.comFebruary 15, 2010
Brown, in his acting debut, displays the balance of book smarts, street smarts, and vulnerability that is crucial to the part.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
Doesn't fully live up to all the expectations but is still enjoyable.Film4March 25, 2008
Rather hollow effort.
