Plot Summary

Brendan Fraser (George of the Jungle) leads an all-star cast including Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting), Ben Affleck (Chasing Amy and Shakespeare in Love) and Chris O'Donnell (Batman Forever) in this acclaimed coming-of-age drama. After receiving a scholarship to an exclusive prep school, working-class teen David Greene (Fraser) becomes a star athlete and wins the attention of a beautiful debutante (Amy Locane). But the ties of his newfound friendships are broken when a student reveals the secret David has tried to conceal--he is Jewish. Now David must take the most important stand of his life, one that will touch the lives of many and forever change the course of his future.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: School Ties has a leafy, genteel look that is somehow less than convincing, perhaps because the hairdos are too tidy and the resemblances to other prep-school stories too clear. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Jul 16, 2008

Fresh: Director Robert Mandel, best known for the flashy techno-thriller F/X, brings a surprisingly sensitive touch to this earnest story of intolerance. – Rita Kempley, Washington Post, Oct 15, 2007

Fresh: School Ties is surprisingly effective. – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: The boys put in fine performances but sadly the script lacks the depth of what could have been a challenging story. – Matt Mueller, Empire Magazine, Jun 24, 2010
