Jamal does not only become a better writer, but he also learns the goodness to his integrity.

Professor Crawford is an English teacher at Mailor-Callow, a school Jamal is chosen to attend.Jamal Wallace, William Forrester, and Professor Robert Crawford learn the virtues of life, stereotyping, and integrity.Jamal Wallace is just another teenage African American male resembling all of his other friends in every way… What most individual do not know is that Jamal is extraordinarily intelligent. Jamal’s lessons are learned in opulence with a man named William Forrester.The need to learn and the need to teach are part of an endless circle.In Finding Forrester, the fact that the hero is both basketball star and literary star highlights bias in two different worlds. The young hero keeps his writing skill and intelligence hidden from his peers. Does anyone want to be looked at and automatically judged just because of the way they look, by their skin color, their hair type, or even the type of clothing they wear?Finding Forrester is a film that in my opinion perpetuates stereotypes.When Forrester finally leaves his hermetically sealed world and comes forward to take responsibility and defend Jamal, he not only saves his disciple but also gives himself one last chance at living before he succumbs to cancer.One important theme of the film is that writing is a search for self.The professor is ascertained that Jamal is just attending because of his undoubted savvy to play basketball.What Professor Crawford does not know is that Jamal has an undeniable deftness of reading and writing, and because of that Crawford accuses Jamal of plagiarism.
