Good Will Hunting

Academy Award-winning drama written by and starring Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, directed by Gus Van Sant. Follows a mathematically gifted janitor at MIT who lacks the proper direction to escape his blue-collar life. Also stars Robin Williams (who won the Best Supporting Acting Oscar) and Minnie Driver.

Will Hunting (Damon) excels in maths and chemistry, a talent he fails to recognise. Despite the praise given to him by a highly distinguished professor in mathematics, Will cannot break his attachment to his South Boston working-class environment. But when empathetic psychologist Sean Maguire (Williams) takes notices of his potential, Will starts to build the momentum that could turn his life around.

Winner of 2 Academy Awards, including Best Original Screenplay and Best Supporting Actor (Robin Williams).

The script's bare bones are familiar, yet the film also has fine acting, steady momentum, a sharp eye and a very warm heart.

It's the individual moments, not the payoff, that make it so effective.

While the charismatic performances of Damon and Affleck make it difficult entertainment to resist, doing just that is not as hard as the film would like to think.
