When David Greene receives a football scholarship to a prestigious prep school in the 1950s, he feels pressure to hide the fact that he is Jewish. But when he becomes a big man and his background is revealed, what would happen?
In the real world, it's more likely that Greene's working-class background would work harder against his acceptance at a snooty prep school than his religious beliefs, but School Ties largely ignores this angle.
Well-intentioned (and only occasionally mawkish) tale of college-boy anti-semitism.

Though well-intentioned as a message picture, the film is too schematic and predictable, and ultimately may be more significant in featuring a new cohort of actors, including Brandon Frazer, Chris O'Donnell, Matt Damon, and others.
This is a bewildering mixture of fairly accomplished storytelling, awkward contrivances in the script, and lies in the overall conception so egregious they undercut any pretensions the film might have to social seriousness.
