Will Hunting is a floor cleaner at a university, who just wants to have a good time. But he is secretly a brilliant mathematician, which is only revealed when he is caught solving advanced math problems instead of cleaning floors.

The head strong Will Hunting soon gets into trouble with the law and is saved from jail by a professor at the university who has seen Will's true potential, however his release is under the condition that the professor can try and teach Will to use his mathematical gift and that Will goes to a therapist. Will eventually goes to see therapist Sean McGuire, whose relationship does not get of to the best start, but Sean is determined to see Will get the best from life.

The sound quality is good but since the film is dialog based the sound never really gets pushed to its limits, the picture is clear and has a high bit rate.

In an age of films where special effects have replaced well defined characters and intelligent and thought provoking plot lines Good Will Hunting makes a refreshing change and well deserves the two Oscars it won for Best Supporting Actor and Best Original Screenplay. Ben Affleck and Matt Damon wrote the film for themselves to act in and with the only ambition in mind that in future years they could have something to look back on and show the film to friends and say 'We did that'.

Whereas the story is not overly complicated it has been well written and the characters have been given a lot of depth as well as the relationships between the characters. The quality of acting in the film is high especially from Robin Williams and Matt Damon.

This film well directed, well written, and well acted, a brilliant piece of entertainment, which is highly enjoyable to watch.
