Dir. Gus Van Sant. 1997, 126 mins.

With Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Robin Williams. Van Sant’s biggest commercial success, Good Will Hunting is the Oscar-winning story of a young math savant (Damon) who works as a janitor at MIT. Once discovered, he begins seeing a therapist and attending math classes, forcing him to confront his emotional past. The film is true to Van Sant’s interest in marginal working-class characters, while still working as mainstream entertainment.
