Will Hunting (Matt Damon) is a difficult man to understand.  On one hand he is an absolute genius capable of solving even the most intricate math problems, but on the other chooses to work as a janitor at one of America's most prestigious universities. 

 

MIT professor Gerald Lambeau (StellanSkarsgård) attempts to bring Will out of his shell and encourage him to pursue something greater in life.  The challenge is met with resistance, but a psychologist named Dr. Sean Maguire (Robin Williams) forces Hunting to confront his troubled past and forgive himself.

 

Good Will Hunting won two Oscars and a Golden Globe.  The picture was produced for a modest $10 million, but managed to gross $225 million internationally.
