Finding Forrester (2000) -- My favorite film of all time hands down.  It's cinematic perfection.  Mike Rich's script is humbling in its brilliance, and Gus Van Sant proves that he's not just an "action" director.  Combine that with the mind-blowing performance of Rob Brown, who at the time was an UNKNOWN with no formal training; Sean Connery at his best, F. Murray Abraham expertly playing a despicable foil, I could go on and on.  SEE it!
