Sorry, we don't have the rights to sell this movie in your country

Reclusive novelist William Forrester (Sean Connery) won a Pulitzer Prize four decades ago, but hasn't been heard from since. When African American scholar-athlete Jamal Wallace (Rob Brown) sneaks into his apartment and accidentally leaves behind his backpack full of writings, they both get something unexpected in return: Jamal encounters not only his first fan, but a mentor who will challenge and change him forever, and Forrester has a reason to emerge from his self-imposed solitude. But their friendship is tested when a charge of plagiarism is leveled against Jamal by autocratic Professor Crawford (F. Murray Abraham). Both men face a decision: for Jamal, between following his dream or betraying a friend; for Forrester, between remaining closed off or looking at the world through new eyes.
