Forest Wiest said he always liked the movie Brian's Song. The Harford County supervisor of physical education and athletics had a little more reason than most to take interest in that film. The well-known television movie featured the story of Chicago Bears running back Brian Piccolo, who died in 1970 at the age of 26, seven months after he was diagnosed with cancer. Wiest knew Piccolo, having played football with him at Wake Forest. Wiest went back to Wake Forest last month for a reunion of players who were on teams in the mid-1960s under former coach Bill Tate.

Jodie Foster's feature directing debut, "Little Man Tate," is an efficient piece of feel-good fakery. It should trick a lot of people into thinking they're seeing something sensitive, but more discerning viewers will be annoyed by the narrative and emotional corners the film constantly cuts.More disappointing than annoying are two of the mediocre performances turned in by the three leads. Foster herself -- considered by many the brightest of our under-30 actresses -- trowels on her Oscar-winning, blue-collar "Accused" mannerisms.
