The inspirational story of a headstrong, working-class genius and his psychologist took home two Academy Awards in 1997 - Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Robin Williams; Best Original Screenplay for co-stars Matt Damon and Ben Affleck - and was nominated for seven others, including a Best Actor nod for Damon and a Best Supporting Actress nod for Minnie Driver.

Given "Two Big Thumbs Up" by Siskel & Ebert and hailed as "The Best Picture of the Year" by CBS-TV, the film also stars Stellan Skarsgεrd (The Avengers) and Casey Affleck (Ocean's Eleven) and was directed by Academy Award nominee Gus Van Sant (Best Achievement in Directing, Milk, 2008).
SYNOPSIS: A true motion picture phenomenon, this triumphant story was nominated for nine Academy Awards - winning Oscars for Robin Williams (Best Supporting Actor) and then newcomers Matt Damon and Ben Affleck (Best Original Screenplay). The most brilliant mind at America's top university isn't a student...he's the kid who cleans the floors! Will Hunting (Damon) is a headstrong, working-class genius who's failing the lessons of life. After one too many run-ins with the law, Will's last chance is a psychology professor (Williams), who might be the only man who can reach him. With acclaimed performances from Minnie Driver (Grosse Pointe Blank) and Ben Affleck - you'll find Good Will Hunting a powerful and memorable movie experience!
