My dad introduced me to this Good Will Hunting recently and I have to say I really enjoyed it. I feel like we always dedicate are attention to mainstream Netflix originals, and although some of them are good they don’t have the same impact on me like the classics.
Good Will Hunting is about an extremely smart self taught teenager named Will Hunting that always dreamed of becoming a mathematician. However, his poor background prevents him from going to college, and the furthest he ever gets to his dream is by working as a janitor at MIT. One day he finally is recognized for his intellect by solving a math problem that none of the students could answer. Although he reaches his dream, Will quickly realizes the fame is not for him and descends into depression. It is up to his close friends and therapist Sean Maguire to pull him out.
Good Will Hunting is everything you could want in a movie. It is funny, sad, and has a good message about life at the same time. Therefore, I’m giving this movie a fresh rating. Also Robin William’s performance as Sean Maguire was so good that he won an Oscar.
