"Finding Forrester" is "Good Will Hunting in the Bronx," and whether that is good news or not depends on how you reacted to the original Boston-based production. Once again we meet a gifted young person who prefers to hide his accomplishments from his peers and an experienced mentor who learns a lesson or two himself as he helps the youngster find a place in the world. Once again, Gus Van Sant is directing and, in case we miss the connection, there's even a cameo for "Good Will" star Matt Damon.

The pairing of Sean Connery and newcomer Rob Brown as mentor and pupil in "Finding Forrester" is a study in contrasts, both on and off the screen. Although they're both more than 6 feet tall, Connery is broad-shouldered and robust while Brown is lithe and boyish. The two are at opposite ends of their professional lives. At 70, Connery is in the autumn of an astonishing career dating to the early 1950s. Brown, who was born in 1984, is making his motion picture debut.

Goaltender Patrick Roy would rather not think about his unbeaten streak at the Montreal Forum, where the Canadiens beat the Boston Bruins, 3-2, Monday night in Game 1 of the Adams Division final. Though he stretched his home unbeaten streak to 32 games, while making 26 saves to pace the Canadiens on Monday, he said of his streak, "I don't think about that." He remembers too well what happened after his team won the first game in last year's division final. The Canadiens won the Game 1 of last spring's division final against the Bruins and lost the series, 4-1. "We have to remember what happened last year," Roy said.
