The Gus Van Sant-directed story of a genius drop out from Southie catapulted the film’s stars and writers, Matt Damon & Ben Affleck, onto Hollywood’s a-list. “Good Will Hunting” also earned eight Academy Award Nominations and won two: Robin Williams for Best Supporting Actor and Ben Affleck & Matt Damon for Best Screenplay.
In terms of box office, the film grossed over twenty-two times its budget and as anyone who watches weekend commercial television knows, it’s become a modern re-run classic.
