TCP#4: GOOD WILL HUNTING



Good Will Hunting is a 1997 American drama film directed by Gus Van Sant. Alongside Ben Affleck and Robin Williams, the film starred Matt Damon in the lead role of Will Hunting, a prodigy hoodlum from South Boston who works as a janitor at MIT. Written by Affleck and Damon, who rose to stardom with the film's success, Good Will Hunting was a box office hit and won two Academy Awards.
Will Hunting (Matt Damon) is a janitor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and has a genius-level intellect, eidetic memory and a profound gift formathematics. Despite this, he remains working as a janitor and lives alone in a sparsely-furnished house in a rundown South Boston neighborhood, spending time with his friends Chuckie Sullivan (Ben Affleck), Billy McBride (Cole Hauser) and Morgan O'Mally (Casey Affleck). An abused foster child, he unconsciously blames himself for his unhappy upbringing and turns this self-loathing into a form of self-sabotage in both his professional and emotional lives.

This movie seems popular, I have heard it's a great one, I should watch it sometime, maybe without the kids, if it has a lot of swearing..
