Wednesday Night Pitcher Show
Good Will Hunting
Robin Williams tribute month
A breakthrough film in more ways than one, GOOD WILL HUNTING is a genuinely moving, exceptionally written and performed drama of a mathematical genius at odds with the world. Co-writer Matt Damon (who deservedly shared a Best Screenplay Oscar with co-star Ben Affleck) gives a sincere performance as Will Hunting, a troubled working-class Boston youth. Working as a janitor at M.I.T., Will is spotted answering a difficult physics question on a blackboard, the only one to get it right. The professor (Stellan Skarsgård) immediately takes him under his wing, but Will is also in trouble with the law. He convinces psychology professor Sean McGuire (Robin Williams) to counsel Will to keep him out of jail. These sessions are the heart of the drama, in which both men are able to come to terms with their demons. Through extraordinary dialogue, the painful process of psychological recovery is as mesmerizing to watch as it is touching. Director Gus Van Sant, whose most accessible work this is to date, never allows the film to wallow in sentimentality; it’s low-key, but it’s also as tough-minded, steadfast, and unexpectedly humorous as Will himself. The performances are uniformly excellent. In addition to the great acting by Damon and Williams (who won an Academy Award), co-writer Affleck makes a very good impression as Will’s best friend, and Minnie Driver is splendid as a Harvard student who sees in Will more than his gruff exterior and masked hurt.
