This paper presents an overview of the character, William Forrester, in the movie "Finding Forrester". The writer of this paper explores the personality of Forrester and examines his maturity level when compared to others his age.

From the Paper:

"As we mature and grow older there are many things about us that changes with time. We become more tolerant at times and then again we may become less so. One thing that usually happens is we tire of games and pranks and we begin to focus on life and making money. Children have the gift of innocence because they still find awe in the world and as we grow old we not only lose that sense of wonder but we begin to withdraw. In the movie Finding Forrester we find a classic illustration of what can happen when someone grows older without the proper maturity level to handle the process. William Forrester is crotchety and ornery while at the same time he shows himself to be incredibly immature. His character is an excellent study in the aging process for the gifted that have nowhere else to go."
