Celebrities die all year round. There’s no debating it, there’s no stopping it, there’s only accepting it. But how people react can differ. Some people are huge fans and are utterly devastated to hear the news, whilst others aren’t too familiar with the celebrity and therefore unaffected. Well I think it’s safe to say that everyone was affected by the news of Robin Williams’ passing.
Will Hunting (Matt Damon) is a janitor at M.I.T, but he’s also a genius. He is capable of so many things, but unfortunately has no direction in his life. That’s before he meets Sean Maguire (Williams), a psychotherapist who is immune to Will’s hostile defence mechanisms and gets through to him. The pair form a bond, and Will starts to discover his identity and what he wants to do with his life.
Good Will Hunting is an incredible film, one of the best films of the 90s, and a high point in the careers of everyone involved. It’s witty, brilliant, hilarious, and sensationally engaging. It’s essential viewing for Robin Williams fans, and an excellent way to remember him.
