Synopsis


Good Will Hunting
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck co-scripted and star in this drama, set in Boston and Cambridge, about rebellious 20-year-old MIT janitor Will Hunting (Damon), gifted with a photographic memory, who hangs out with his South Boston bar buddies, his best friend Chuckie (Affleck), and his affluent British girlfriend Skylar (Minnie Driver). After MIT professor Lambeau (Stellan Skarsgard) stumps students with a challenging math formula on a hallway blackboard, Will anonymously leaves the correct solution, prompting Lambeau to track the elusive young genius. As Will's problems with the police escalate, Lambeau offers an out, but with two conditions -- visits to a therapist and weekly math sessions. Will agrees to the latter but refuses to cooperate with a succession of therapists. Lambeau then contacts his former classmate, therapist Sean McGuire (Robin Williams), an instructor at Bunker Hill Community College. Both are equally stubborn, but Will is finally forced to deal with both his past and his future. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

    Good Will Hunting is a must watch movie, I had never seen it until I purchased it from Best Buy, but it was a movie that I had heard about from a lot of friends. It was fantastic.

    After the untimely death of Robin Williams, I started looking for his various (and varied) movies on DVD. I knew this one was great (it is) and gracious, and without giving it away, a heart thumper. This one is good enough to own, and not just wait for late night movies on TV.

    I had seen the movie before, but I wanted to have a copy to view whenever I wanted. The movie shows Robin Williams in a dramatic role, which shows the breadth of his acting ability. This and Dead Poet's Society take him well away from comedy, particularly the manic kind for which he was well-known. The other reason for buying the movie is now that he is gone, the movie has special significance, as he played a psychological counselor who helped a special person get past a serious barrier in his life. It is sad that no counselor was able to reach Mr. Williams when he hit an even more serious barrier. About the physical DVD itself--it ran correctly, and was very clear on my TV. No surprises here.

    This is a classic movie. One of Robin Williams' best and one of Matt Damon's best. The Blu-ray picture is great.

    Excellent movie, mediocre HD transfer.

    This movie is a testament to the late, great Robin Williams. The only letdown is the less-than-stellar HD transfer.
