The 1997 film “Good Will Hunting” is possibly one of the best films that featured the young stars Ben Affleck and Matt Damon. The story-line is easy to follow and sympathize with, a genius level impoverished and underprivileged kid from the “South side” has taken up a job doing janitorial work at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).

While there, he understands and makes large leaps in the field of mathematics. Throughout the film it is revealed that Matt Damon’s character had a rough upbringing leading to him having trouble with the law. Constant revelations about the character’s troubled adolescence brings you into the heart of the character and will leave you both wanting to know more but also wanting to comfort him.

Will (Matt Damon) has to work through the psychological trauma and pain that continues to fuel his self-destructive tendencies. The plot itself thickens when Will finally has someone to care for him.

The rest of the film is spent watching Will’s self-destructive tendencies and trouble with the law jeopardize his future in mathematics and possibly his only way out of the area that he grew up in. The movie itself was a hit, making around $225.9 million and has an overall 97% approval rating on rotten tomatoes. Which is astoundingly high for a movie.
