Jamal Wallace is a gifted 16 year-old African American who stumbled upon William Forrester, a reclusive writer, who became his mentor. Against a backdrop of the interplay of racial prejudice, friendship, honour and integrity, the “words” of both men interwoven planted seeds of inspiration into our hearts. And so as I watched “Finding Forrester” for what could have been at least the third time, I found it ignited in me once again the yearning for pursuing words to their ultimate fruition, to inspire and to touch hearts! Words well-written should should lift up lives and light the night.
