Good Will Hunting: A Screenplay

Overview

As director Gus Van Sant observes in the introduction to Matt Damon's and Ben Affleck's screenplay Good Will Hunting, the two young actors somewhat resemble the characters they play in the film: they're best friends, and Affleck (who plays Chuckie) habitually chauffeurs Damon (Will), who doesn't drive. Van Sant says we can see how badly Damon drives by watching the film's last scene, in which he is actually driving the car with the camera mounted on it. But Damon and company write better than he drives; this ...

Overview

As director Gus Van Sant observes in the introduction to Matt Damon's and Ben Affleck's screenplay Good Will Hunting, the two young actors somewhat resemble the characters they play in the film: they're best friends, and Affleck (who plays Chuckie) habitually chauffeurs Damon (Will), who doesn't drive. Van Sant says we can see how badly Damon drives by watching the film's last scene, in which he is actually driving the car with the camera mounted on it. But Damon and company write better than he drives; this script contains some of the boldest, best monologues since Pulp Fiction.Van Sant and cast member Robin Williams helped the young actors tame the tigers in their cranial tanks, trimming the script into a precision instrument. Though the stills from the film are not perfectly matched to their places in the script, this story remains as much a joy to read as it is towatch on the big screen.

    A Screenplay That Is More Of A Novel...

    People, if your looking for a screenplay, this one is it! It has some lines that were deleted from the movie which makes it a little better. It is alot similar to the movie, but its more of a book than a screenplay. I don't own the screenplay, but the movie is my favorite and I was interested in reading the screenplay. Matt And Ben did a great job, and it just blew me away with how good the plot line was. If your interested in reading screenplays, I so reccomend picking up this book!

    The little known value of disposable kids

    I grew up as a ward of state and when i came to be an adult, i put myself through college and have made a living for myself. For over 20 years i have paid rent,many forms of taxes, and donated time and money to charities. I am told i am successful but i do not entirely feel that way. However, i have held my own and made a net positive contribution to society. This movie is basically about a throwaway kid who realizes his potential because people believe in him and recognize his value.Who knows what might be achieved by kids no one wants?

    What if Einstein was abandoned and abused?

    Great story that describes a young man with gifted intelligence but who seems directionless and lacks intimate relationships. An MIT professor, perhaps one of only a few who is able to recognize his brilliance befriends him and introduces him to a social worker/professor who guides him in his journey to confront his past and embrace the future.An interesting fiction of what might happen to a boy with the genius of Einstein but who has been abused and abandoned all his life.

    This was an amazing book!

    I think that the book was based on real life people. And that there are people out there who really are smart but dont take advantage of it.
