Reclusive writer William Forrester (Sean Connery) wrote the Great American Novel and never published again; instead, he spent his days watching the local Bronx boys play basketball from his window. Jamal Wallace (Rob Brown), one of those boys, spends his time off the court scribbling in journals, but has little hope of becoming a professional writer. On a dare, he breaks into Forrester's apartment, and they begin an uneasy collaboration. The film hints at dark and challenging issues--Forrester's voyeuristic interest in boys, Wallace's immersion into a white prep school and the possibility of losing his identity--yet it remains focused on the inspirational elements of the two men's relationship. 2000, U.S., color, 35mm, 137 minutes.
