GOOD WILL HUNTING
1997, Miramax, 126 min, USA, Dir: Gus Van Sant

When an MIT mathematician (Stellan Skarsgard) posts a difficult problem, janitor Will Hunting (Matt Damon) solves it before the professor’s students. Will is comfortable mopping floors and hanging out with working class friend Chuckie (Ben Affleck), but the professor sees wasted potential and points the troubled young man in the direction of therapist Sean Maguire (Robin Williams) – who is carrying his own emotional baggage. A commercial breakthrough for director Gus Van Sant, the box office hit brought Oscars to Williams for Best Supporting Actor and to Damon and Affleck for their Original Screenplay. With Minnie Driver.
