David Greene is brought into a prestigious 1950s school to help their football team to beat the school’s old rivals.

David is a Jew, and has to keep this a secret from his friends for fear of being rejected.
Motion Picture Rating (MPAA)
Rated PG-13 for language
I liked this movie the first time I watched it,which is probably why I have watched it twice since then.Seeing future stars in a small time movie was a bonus but it was the story that appealed to me.Anti-Semitism was once the “in-thing”,just as lynching African Americans was once accepted and condoned.It’s a sad and shameful part of our history,a part that we’d like to forget but we most definitely shouldn’t…because if we do we just might repeat ourselves,and nobody wants to do that…do they?
I think “School Ties” gets the point across.Sure the script has its flaws,but which script doesn’t?The story is an important one.Each time we watch it we”ll remember and that’s a good thing,’cause we just might forget and that would be dangerous.
