As wisdom, it's second to none. Overall, I thought this movie was believable and touching, without your typical ending. . Sure, Will Hunting's genius is profoundly unrealistic. Even if the acting were not terrific, this movie still would have made my top ten list.
I was captivated from beginning to end. And Robin Williams certainly leaves nothing to be desired except maybe a beard trimmer. The acting, direction and script are wonderful. But if there's any scene that will have me in tears, it's the one where Will finally breaks down and starts to cry. Twenty-year-old Will Hunting Matt Damon of South Boston is a self-taught, genius-level intellect, though he works as a janitor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and spends his free time drinking with his friends, Chuckie Ben Affleck , Billy Cole Hauser and Morgan Casey Affleck.
There is more to life then what we are taught and what we have to show for it. To install our extension, click on: 1. The brilliance in it is everywhere. Only those who deny their own vulnerability will remain unaffected by this film. Personally, I thought the plot was an excellent idea - maybe someone else could have thought of it, but could they have provided the great script? I think this really tells us a lot about the people around us and makes a point about looking below the surface. And no, it doesn't mean that's because they lack intelligence to use anything else. That is until a professor at one of the top colleges finds Will's talent and helps him out of trouble with the law.
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck really have done themselves proud. I don't know whether Matt and Ben have ever been in therapy, but they certainly understand a lot about the human psyche, how it ducks responsibility, and pushes blame onto others, how it dismisses the real gifts it has and concentrates on running itself down. Matt's best work since Dogma and Williams best along side Dead Poet's Society. I also liked to watch how Will behaved around his buddies; the four guys really seemed as if they had known each other all their lives. If that's all you heard, you weren't listening! The language shouldn't even be an issue. The writing is witty, brilliant and hilarious at times, both Matt and Robin Williams preform wonderfully from both a comedic and theatrical prospective.
The script is a jewel. Add Robin Williams in perhaps his best role ever too close to Good Morning Vietnam for me to make the call , and you have a wonderfully entertaining movie. You will see that it really is beautiful. For example, William's character putting Damon's character in place by noting that he sneers at things that he has no real life experience with. This movie is ahead of it's time, and lands an easy 10 out of 10. Yet I'm giving this one 10 out of 10.
Will has had a very abusive childhood which hurt him mentally to a point where he can no longer let anyone close to him aside from his best friend who is played by Ben. How many of us suffer from the same problems as Will? The most amazing thing about this movie is the writing. It appears the jury is hung. Will's relationships with the people around him are wonderful to watch, especially with Skylar Minnie Driver - there was real chemistry between them. Will Hunting is a genius who's living a rough life in South Boston, while being employed at a prestigious college in Boston, he's discovered by a Fields Medal winning Professor who eventually tries to get Will to turn his life around with the help of Sean Maguire, as Will begins to realize that there's more to himself then he thinks there is.
The film just about manages to avoid easy answers, preferring to acknowledge indeed, highlight the complexity and pain of personal growth and self-realisation. I think it had a real slice of life, and brilliance in it. Thank you for your support To install our extension, click on 1. When I got home, I finally burst into tears. Sure, this film's plot is fairly predictable. This is the best movie I have seen since the Godfather. Sorry, but some people do use 4 letter words to express themselves.
This film burns slowly, inside you. When Will is arrested for attacking a police officer, Professor Lambeau makes a deal to get leniency for him if he will get treatment from therapist Sean Maguire. When he solves a difficult graduate-level math problem, his talents are discovered by Professor Gerald Lambeau, who decides to help the misguided youth reach his potential. As cinema, it's fair to middling. I know people like that. Yes there is a girl, but this is not a romantic movie. If your looking for a typical Hollywood movie with a Hollywood ending, then do not bother spending two hours on this movie.
And as for the profanity - yes, there was a lot, but I don't give a damn! Not only is the script powerful, but the dynamics between the characters - all of them selfish, even Skylar - is vividly and plausibly executed. My advice: Forget the Oscar nominations, the rave reviews, the famous faces, and sit down to watch this movie with a completely impartial attitude. This one is a keeper in my movie library. Robin Williams later comes in as a therapist to Will, he is the only one who can really stand up to Will's intellect and manages to break the layer of distrust that Will has developed over years of solitude, and the two develop a bond beyond friendship. Hey, my mum even says so, and she teaches sociology! When Professor Gerald Lambeau Stellan Skarsgård posts a difficult mathematics problem as a challenge for his graduate students, Will solves the problem anonymously, stunning both the graduate students and Lambeau. I can tell you why I loved it. I feel he plunged right into the part and relished it, although something told me his accent wasn't quite right! The movie lasts for 2 hours, and every minute of it I couldn't even focus on anything beside the incredible world of Will Hunting.
