Welcome to the third installment of a weekly movie blog series about the best movies you (probably) haven’t seen. Last week, we featured Green Street Hooligans, and the first post featured Finding Forrester.

(The idea is that each week I’ll throw out a movie that I think is really great, but isn’t a huge mainstream hit, or it’s not fresh and likely hasn’t been seen in quite a while—if at all. If you have seen it, share what you think about it—and feel free to rip me if you think it’s not worth watching! Then, in the comments, you all make one movie suggestion as well. It’s that simple, and it’ll be a lot of fun if you’re a cinephile like me.)

Monday Movies has a nice ring and (almost) alliteration (alliteration technically requires three consecutive words beginning with the same consonant), and this it has been named!

The inaugural film I’m suggesting is a turn-of-the-millenium flick featuring Sean Connery and Anna Paquin called Finding Forrester, which peaked at #1 in the Box Office in 2001, but since then seems to have been forgotten. Amazon’s summary: Read more
