For Good Will Hunting’s 15th anniversary, the film gets a Blu-ray update. This lauded character drama is one that benefits from the hi-def look and well-timed release. With Ben Affleck trading in his rocky acting career for a higher profile directorial one and Matt Damon as a solidified movie star, now is a great time to return to their classic film.
Written by Ben Affleck and Matt Damon (earning them numerous Best Original Screenplay awards including the Oscar), Good Will Hunting tells the story of Will Hunting’s (Damon) life in Boston as people discover his photographic memory. Will is a punky, smartass janitor at MIT who solves a difficult mathematical theorem that’s posted in one of the hallways. When the mathematics professor Gerald Lambeau (Stellan Skarsgard) discovers that Will solved it, he becomes deeply involved in his life.
