Good Will Hunting

2h 7m Drama 1997

While trying to build their acting careers, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, as often happened through the ‘90s, took the initiative and wrote something for themselves to star in. In another example of the camaraderie that existed among independent filmmakers at the time, director Kevin Smith (Clerks, 1994), with whom both Damon and Affleck had worked, proved instrumental in getting the film made by personally bringing it to the attention of the studio head. Directed by Gus Van Sant (My Own Private Idaho, 1991), the film focuses on the titular Will (Damon), janitor at MIT and parolee who also happens to be a math genius. After his talents are discovered, and as part of a plea deal, Will attends therapy sessions with Sean (Robin Williams). Affleck and Damon won Oscars for their writing, and Williams for his performance in this moving film.
