This intense drama focuses on David Greene (Brendan Fraser), a football star from a working-class high school in Scranton, Pennsylvania, who wins a scholarship to a posh boarding school in Massachusetts.

He jump starts their ailing football team. However, when his peers find out that he is a Jew, their anti-Semitism makes his life into a nightmare. Setting this film in the 1950s is a bit of a cop-out given the prevalence of similar racial hatred in our times. Nonetheless, any drama which helps youth realize the soul murdering dimensions of bigotry is worth recommending.
