Good Will Hunting Will Matt Damon Sean McGuire Robin Williams Chuckie Ben Affleck Skylar Minnie Driver Lambeau Stellan Skarsgard Directed by Gus Van Sant Written by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck Running time 125 minutes Classified R for strong language including some sex-related dialogue It must be heartbreaking to be able to appreciate true genius and yet fall just short of it yourself A man can spend his entire life studying to be a mathematician--and yet watch helplessly while a high school dropout a janitor scribbles down the answers to questions the professor is baffled by Its also heartbreaking when genius wont recognize itself and thats the most baffling problem of all in Good Will Hunting the smart involving story of a working-class kid from Boston The film stars Matt Damon as a janitor at MIT who likes to party and hang around the old neighborhood and whose reading consists of downloading the contents of whole libraries into his photographic memory Stellan Skarsgard the husband in Breaking the Waves plays Lambeau the professor who offers a prize to any student who can solve a difficult problem The next morning the answer is written on a blackboard standing in the hall Who claims credit None of the students does A few days later Lambeau catches Will Hunting Damon at the board and realizes hes the author--a natural mathematical genius who can intuitively see through the thorniest problems Lambeau wants to help Will to get him into school maybe or collaborate with him But before that can take place Will and some buddies are cruising the old neighborhood and beat up a guy Will also hammers on the cops a little and is jailed Hes a tough nut He sees nothing wrong with spending his whole life hanging out with his friends quaffing a few beers holding down a blue-collar job
