Givens and Hofschneider are wonderful together. There's a sweet gentleness in their interaction, and their love scenes are electric.

Audience Reviews for Foreign Student


1955 is really not long ago. Amazing that blacks were treated like that 60 years ago. Philippe is a French exchange student who is thrown into Virginia of the 1950's with all its pros and cons.
