A math genius denies his gift to hang with his old friends and work as a janitor, finally coming to terms with his past when he meets a quirky psychologist. Oscars for Robin Williams and Best Original Screenplay.
“Good Will Hunting” is a 1997 American psychological drama film that revolves around child abuse, a path to self-rediscovery, and love.
The plot centers on a 20 yr old young man, Will Hunting (Matt Damon), a mathematical genius who works as a janitor at MIT and lives in an under-furnished apartment in an impoverished neighborhood of South Boston.
After solving two graduate-level combinatorial math problems left on the chalkboard by Professor Gerald Lambeau (Stellan Skarsgård) for his graduate students, the professor tries to find this young man with this genius-level intelligence who isn’t even a student of his class.
Fate later brought them together when Will lands himself in trouble after hitting a police officer during a fight with a dude who used to bully him as a child, and now, is faced with imprisonment.
The professor steps in on his behalf and gives him a choice either to go to jail or be released to his personal custody, where he must study mathematics and see a psychotherapist to help him with his anger and defensive personality. Will chooses the latter even though he seems to believe that he does not need therapy.
This movie is for those who want to steer a bit away from the fictional and CGI-infested Hollywood action movies, though we were never told if this movie was based on a true-life story or not, it seems more like something that can happen in real life.
Since its inception in 1997, the movie has been nominated up to 61 times and won over 24 awards, including two Oscars.
So, for the next 2 hr and 6 min, you’ll be pinned to your chairs, while walking through the path of life and self-rediscovery with Matt Damon in the movie, Good Will Hunting.
