    One thought on “Good Will Hunting”

    1. “Sometimes I wish I had never met you, because then I could go to sleep at night not knowing there was someone like you out there.”

    2. If you want a summary read the wikki but you should watch this movie because it is heart warming and accurately portrays real life cheracters. Film are often credited for their character development and this film is no acceptation. Its clear cut with no extra bull, I appreciated the lack of needless scenes in this movie. Every place shown on camera had a meaning, every moment worked to add to character development. There was not a precious moment wasted in this wonderful work of art. The plot li [...]

    3. In "Good Will Hunting", by Matt Damon, Will has committed so many crimes and he is on the verge of going to jail but instead he works as a janitor at a high school and a professor acknowledges and finds a hidden talent that Will has. He is extremely intelligent and doesn't want to do anything about it because people look at him like he's a druggie or he's just a bad influence. In the middle of the book, he meets Skylar at a bar and instantly falls in love with her. Skylar goes to college at Harv [...]

    4. Good Will Hunting by Matt Damon and Ben AffleckThis is a stupendous work that has launched the careers of Matt Damon and Ben Affleck They have won both the Golden Globe and the Academy Award for their screenplayWill Hunting is a hero, an Ubermensch and a complicated, anxious, troubled young man, prone to violence.When the mathematics professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology writes a complicated equation, Will solves it.But he is only a janitor at M.I.T.This could be perceived as a [...]

    5. It's especially fascinating to see the changes, however slight, made from script to film. After all, what sounds good on the page doesn't necessarily translate well on stage.

    6. One of my all-time favorite movies, based on a heart warming, simple but powerful sentimentally script. The characters built-up is really brilliant. It is all about how the past & experiences can tremendously affect our behavior and emotions, how one can be closed to himself due to pre-existing traumas. It is also how one should seek out for what satisfies his soul & what he really wants to do in his life, ignoring what his environment or society expects him to. It is, last, about openin [...]

    7. It was quite interesting to read this - nearly twenty years on from seeing the film. I never quite saw the fuss (of either the film or the script) and was firmly in the camp that believed William Goldman wrote/'fixed' thisThat's probably not true, but where are the other great scripts from this dynamic writing duo? Some fine dialogue though, when revisiting this. I think I'd struggle to make it through the film again and care in any way but I did enjoy reading the script; didn't quite expect tha [...]

    8. Great Play. Some typos. Really want to see my reaction when I compare this to the film (haven't seen the movie yet, so I'm reading the play first)!some random notes:-loyalty-fear of abandonment-competition-enjoying your life; passion-true happiness-get out of the nest

    9. Excellent movie.20-year-old Will Hunting of South Boston has a genius-level intellect and an eidetic memory, but chooses to work as a janitor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and spend his free time with his friends Chuckie Sullivan, Billy McBride, and Morgan O'Mally. When Fields Medal-winning combinatorialist Professor Gerald Lambeau posts a difficult problem taken from algebraic graph theory as a challenge for his graduate students to solve, Will solves the problem quickly but anon [...]

    10. Not a shabby read. A book acquired for a piddly quarter and read on the fly. Assuming no spoiler warnings needed since no one reads a screenplay without having first watched the movie.And a damn good movie it was. Good Will Hunting (GWH) was nominated for 9 Academy Awards and won two, including best original screenplay for Damon and Affleck, and best supporting actor for Williams. Nuanced performances from Matt Damon (“Will”), Ben Affleck (“Chuckie”), Robin Williams (“Sean”), Minnie [...]

    11. Robbin Williams coaching techniques can be implemented in real life in business and communication. 1. Think like a buyer/customer: you just met, and suddenly you are an expert in his business, telling him he’s an idiot---reason why the MIT professor couldn't handle him2. Listen to learn, diagnose before you prescribe. 3. Mirroring the other person to understand him. Robin Williams sticked with the Southie rule and waited for Will to talk first during first session. 4. Leaders should also be go [...]

    12. There are a lot of good scripts throughout film history. Probably more good scripts than good films, for that matter. But when it comes down to it, there are fewer great scripts written by actors that launched successful careers after that film. The predominant one is Rocky, Stallone's script is so prototypical that it is often taught in Screenwriting structure classes. Another, not as prototypical, but very successful is Good Will Hunting.Matt Damon and Ben Affleck's dialogue is great, and ther [...]

    13. Headlines or sentences that should enforce a strong and firm belief that one needs to stop reading said news article:07.) Opinion: Eighty percent of California is in "extreme" drought. But is that why its rivers are disappearing?06.) Farmer bill dies in house.05.) Miners refuse to work after death.04.) School officials, who recently affixed signs marking the dorms with their new names, say the more easily pronounced versions** are easier for visitors, students and emergency responders to locate [...]

    14. Having rewatched this movie twice in the three days following the first time, I basically know it by heart. To me, comparing the lines that actually ended up in the film to the ones in the script was a mixture between a fun little scavenger hunt and a path to better understanding the role a great actor plays in making a character come to life. While, as far as this absolute film amateur can tell, Matt Damon and Ben Affleck definitely deserved their Oscar for best Screenplay, it does bear mention [...]

    15. A screenplay with a powerful message told through raw and real characters. It felt real, and avoiding feeling contrived. I laughed openly a few times felt nearly moved to tears near the end. It is an impressive work for two young actors/writers. It hit me close with its theme of not living beneath your privilege and letting people in. The film itself was well-cast and certainly did the script justice.

    16. 4.5 STARS I saw this movie twice in theatres, bought the DVD and watched it a few times more is among my top favourite movies. I cannot pin down the exact reason I like it or the stars. I ordered this screenplay because I was interested in seeing how much of it made it on screen, but also screen directions. The screenplay is worth it as it makes you appreciate the hard work from these then two unknown actor/screenwriters.

    17. I've seen the movie so many times that reading the script is an almost identical experience. Still, definitely a good script to read if you ever need convincing how much just the right actors adds to their parts.Amusingly the character who goes on to be played by Robin Williams was envisioned very different physically, and there's a couple of interested scenes in here that didn't make it into the film. Little nuggets of info-crack for someone who loves Good Will Hunting as much as I do.

    18. It's been 14 years since I last read the screenplay or saw the movie-and having re-read it I can still say that it's brilliant. The dialogue is quick and smart, the story is well thought out and packs an emotional punch. Having gone to High School with Matt and Ben it still amazes that they wrote such a great piece of cinematic literature. SO glad I revisited this one.

    19. I can dig it.While it didn't blow me away in terms of any type of innovative strategies, its simplistic beauty caught my attention. Sparse the majority of the time.The movie plays better than the script, I think, but that's me.

    20. To be quite honest, I found the movie to be more fitting to this particular dialogue. This book sounds more like a script than a book, which is why I would prefer to watch the movie on this particular title.

    21. fascinating to see the differences between this script and the film and hard not to see william goldman's work throughout the script no matter what anyone says about it on the record.
