I have seen this film 36 times. I guess I have to say it is my favorite film. It is a story of trust, confidence, pride, authorship, and most of all, friendship. The acting by Sean Connery, Rob Brown, F. Murray Abraham and Matt Damon is organic! I just love this film!

Rich supplies some eloquent grace notes, and Van Sant uses them to make understated music. Full Review
Emanuel Levy
Provides a platform for Sean Connery to deliver a definitive, career-summation performance. Full Review
Jay Carr
Boston Globe
A juicy and gratifying teacher movie (a genre to which I'm partial). The joy in performance shared by Connery and Brown is the big reason. Full Review

Even fairy tales could use a bit more substance than this. Full Review
