"Good Will Hunting" is one of the best films of this genre. Redemption films tend to be over-sentimental, over-moralistic, or simply over the top. Thanks to great performances from Robin Williams and Matt Damon, this avoids most of the obvious traps. Gus van Sant directs the film with occasional subtlety and many deft touches. The viewer is never really in doubt about the outcome; it is the multiple redemption that gives the story extra and surprising punch.
Will Hunting, an emotionally challenged mathematical genius from South Boston spends his time drinking, fighting and generally challenging authority wherever he finds it. Perverse vanity cannot prevent him from completing equations displayed as challenges by a professor at MIT. Brought together with a psychiatrist (Robin Williams), he moves from confrontation to passive resistance to acceptance of his own emotions and needs. The interplay between the two provides the emotional backbone to the story, while the interplay of his mathematical facility and his encounters with the professor with the grinding dullness of the jobs he works provides the intellectual to-and-fro. For love interest he uses his mind to attract a girl at Harvard (Minnie Driver) and uses his emotional inadequacy to maintain a distance.
Self discovery at the hands of the psychiatrist is predictable but cleverly presented. His conflicts with authority are deftly drawn; the plot works right through to the final interplays between Will and the conflicting elements of his life.
One word...Classic! This movie is bound to find its way to the top of your movie lists!
A self made genius living in Southie, an irish district of Boston, MA. After a rough childhood of bouncing around abusive foster homes Matt Damon is trying to find his place in the world.

This movie has the power to change the way you view your own life. With an excellent cast and oscar winning performances Good Will Hunting is a movie you cannot afford to have out of you collection. If you claim to love movies this is a must have!
I found this to be an amazing, gripping, tragic, funny, sensational and beautiful told story starring a few of my favourite actors - Robin Williams, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Minni Driver who did a fantastic job. I first saw this when I was quite young and I remember really liking it, but thought it had an awful lot of bad language in it =o) however, I never actually understood it until I watched it in my teen years and it became one of my top films. The acting is just amazing. I love a film with real meaning that stays with you long after it's over. I'm definitely buying the DVD as I'm replacing all of my VHS movies, this one's a must have!!!
This movie was so awesome. I just loved it. Matt Damon, Minnie Driver and Robin Williams did a fantastic job.
Will Hunting (Matt) plays a janitor from the slums who is a genious. He works impossible math problems secretly at night while he's cleaning the floors.
Will, coming from a poor background has trouble with relationships and getting close to anyone.
Its really a great movie about finding yourself, learning how to love and trust after a rocky past, and just having a great life with great friends.
I would definatly recommend this movie for teens and adults.
This movie won the Academy Award in 1998 for best screenplay and deservingly so.
I particularly enjoy the bonus materials such as deleted scenes, various movie trailers, commercial television spots, in depth interviews, behind the scenes look of the movie, and commentary from Matt Damon, Ben Affleck and Gus Van Sant during the movie. This movie is my favorite movie of all time because it was well written and directed.
