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.

My Comments:

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.
