Overview

An assemblage of young Hollywood actors poised for stardom marked this tale of anti-Semitism at a 1950s prep school. Brendan Fraser stars as David Greene, a working-class Jewish quarterback from Scranton, Pennsylvania, who is offered a senior year scholarship to a prestigious New England academy. It's David's ticket to an Ivy League education and a way out of his Rust Belt hometown, but there's one condition: the school's elders ask him to be discreet about his religion. At first willing to do so, David struggles with his silence about his faith as his popularity grows. David strikes up a friendship with his roommate Chris Reece Chris O'Donnell and a possible romance with Sally Wheeler Amy Locane, a student at a nearby girls' school. When jealous classmate Charlie Dillon Matt Damon learns David's secret at an alumni party, he exposes the school's new gridiron hero, and David faces the full force of religious intolerance from the prejudiced WASP institution. Also featuring early performances from Ben Affleck, Anthony Rapp, and Cole Hauser, School Ties was loosely based on the real-life experiences of producer Dick Wolf, creator of TV's popular series Law & Order.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Matthew Tobey
Much like 1996's Courage Under Fire, School Ties should have made Matt Damon a star long before his Oscar-nominated turn in 1997's Good Will Hunting. Surrounded by established actors like Brendan Fraser and Chris O'Donnell, who themselves turn in outstanding performances here, Damon is excellent as the jealous and hate-filled personification of religious intolerance that is at the heart of this film. And while some could accuse the script of being on the predictable side, one shouldn't really expect many surprises from a story like this. The audience feels for Fraser's character and hopes he can overcome the anti-Semitism of his peers. It is in this respect that the writing succeeds. It certainly isn't the best of the countless boarding school films, but School Ties features an engaging story and several top-notch performances that more than warrant a look.

    This movie was very inspiring!

    I enjoyed how you saw his character must simply stand up for his beliefs and you see how weak minded a lot of the people are in this movie. A lot of people would rather be friends with people who don't do the right thing instead of being alone. That kind of thinkling trapped people into misery. I love almost every movie Brendan Frasier has done. I would also recommend the book as well.

    A LESSON FOR LIFE

    This movie is amazing. It portrays how a Jewish student had to faced against those who called them friends. Religion shouldn't end a friendship. Friends are suppose to be loyal and trustable no matter what happens. A must see.
