From Back Cover:
"Like Taps and Dead Poet's Society - only better! A haunting, hard-hitting '10.'"
-Susan Granger, WICC/American Movie Classics
Brendan Fraser (George Of The Jungle) leads an all-star cast including Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting), Ben Affleck (Armageddon) and Chris O'Donnell (Batman Forever) in this acclaimed coming-of-age drama.
After receiving a scholarship to an exclusive prep school, working-class teen David Greene (Fraser) becomes a star athlete and wins the attention of a beautiful debutante (Amy Locane). But the ties of his newfound friendships are broken when a student reveals the secret David has tried to conceal - he is Jewish.
Now David must take the most important stand of his life, one that will touch the lives of many and forever change the course of his future.
After demonstrating his comedic abilities in Encino Man, Brendan Fraser immediately blew me away with his dramatic talents in this moving, poignant film about hypocrisy and hatred. A must-see movie.
Rated PG-13 (MPAA)
