School Ties

My husband and I are watching School Ties. It is a movie with Brendan Frashier. It is a movie about a jewish boy who gets a full football scholarship to an elite prep school in Mass in the 1950's. He is told to keep his faith on the down low for the sake of fitting in. It is a great movie. It has a lot of young actors in it like Matt Damon, Chris O'Donnel, Ben Affleck. They are just babies in this movie but still amazing at their trade. I love the 1950' movie backdrop. The way young men dressed and carried themselves back then makes our young men of today look like sloppy monkeys! There is conflict in the movie and his religion is made public. It does not end happily ever after but it ends well. If you are looking for some thing to watch order up this movie. It will be worth it!

Though I have seen recent films of the actors mentioned,I have not seen many of their previous ones.Reading about them in your review,I will definitely try to see this one.

This was a good movie that was basically the first major exposure for Brendan Fraser and Matt Damon.

This movie sounds interesting. It's good to know that it ends well.
