DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Drama - GOOD WILL HUNTING is a "feel good", coming-of-age story that should appeal to everyone who likes to see the underdog triumph.  For fans of comedy, mathematics, and romance, there's a little of each thrown in for good measure.  There's also quite a bit of profanity, however, so those who are offended by an extreme number of curse words would do well to avoid this film.

Critic's Review Heading
Good
In essence, GOOD WILL HUNTING is an ordinary story told well.  Taken as a whole, there's little that's special about this tale -- it follows a traditional narrative path, leaves the audience with a warm, fuzzy feeling, and never really challenges or surprises us.  But it's intelligently written (with dialogue that is occasionally brilliant), strongly directed, and nicely acted.  Meeting expectations and following a familiar path aren't always bad things in a movie, provided the film accomplishes those goals with a modicum of style and an attention to detail.  GOOD WILL HUNTING does both, and, as a result, earns a rating commensurate with the "good" in the title.

OPINION GRAPH


D ETAILED S TORYLINE

Wildly charismatic. Impossibly brilliant. Totally rebellious. Those are just a few ways to describe Will Hunting (MATT DAMON). For the first twenty years of his life, he has called the shots. Now, he's about to meet his match.

Like his friends in his rough, working­class South Boston neighborhood, Will does menial jobs between stints at the local bar ­ and run­ins with the law. He's never been to college, except to scrub floors as a janitor at MIT. Yet he can summon obscure historical references from a photographic memory, and almost instantly solve math problems that frustrate Nobel Prize winning professors.

The one thing this remarkably bright, angry young man can't do ­ after his latest bar fight ­ is talk his way out of a pending jail sentence. His only hope is Sean McGuire (ROBIN WILLIAMS), a college professor/therapist with an admiration for his emotional struggles, and a keen understanding of what it's like to fight your way through life.
