Will Hunting (Matt Damon) solves math challenges by university professors written on the hallway board. Will is not one of the students. He is a janitor of the school. He secretly solves the problems. Nobody knows that he is the genius behind the solutions until Professor Gerald Lambeau (Stellan Skarsgard) catches him solving one problem. Professor Lambeau soon finds out about his identity. Will later gets into trouble with a police officer. Professor Lambeau decides to get him out of jail on the condition that he cooperates in solving problems and attends psychological therapy sessions with Dr. Sean Maguire (Robin Williams). The two experts are about to have the biggest challenge in their professions in the person of Will Hunting.
This is one drama that I can watch again and again. I like Matt Damon and his character Will. This movie has become the stepping stone to a new level of stardom for both Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, who played the role of Chuckie Sullivan, Will’s best friend. Did you know that these two are childhood friends in real life and that they are the writers of the screenplay of this film? And they get the Oscars for their teamwork! I cannot be prouder of these two because they are such obedient young men. They have always been willing to listen to my whispering advice on the best words for the dialogues in the movie.
And not to be forgotten is Robin Williams. Who does not like him as an actor? He may have left you, dear readers, and has joined our league of jolly spooks, but he has left you all with an amazing collection of great films like Good Will Hunting. In the movie, Robin’s character, Dr. Maguire, is made fun of by Will. But Dr. Maguire is not a man who easily gives up. He tries his best to make Will realize something which, even for a genius like him, may take a lot of effort and time to do so. How much time does Will need? Is he going to solve this personal challenge using mathematical analysis? Or is he just going to give up on what can possibly be waiting in his future? How about his friends and girlfriend? Is he going to give up on them?
