Have this article read to you, listen to it like a podcast

Join us Sunday, July 7th for a special screening of director Gus Van Sant’s 1997 classic Good Will Hunting, selected by The Frida Cinema’s Board President Laura Vasquez — in celebration of her birthday! The screening is open for the general public to purchase tickers, as usual. However, we are making the screening free to our Frida Cinema Film Club members! Film Club members can join us at 6:30 PM before the screening for a Members Only gathering, and doors will open at 7:15 PM for GA.

Highlighted by co-writers Matt Damon and Ben Affleck’s Oscar-winning screenplay, Good Will Hunting is a powerful drama that tells the story of Will Hunting (Damon), a young janitor at MIT with extraordinary, but concealed, mathematical abilities. Burdened with a troubled past and fear of potential, Will is required to undergo therapy sessions with Dr. Sean Maguire (Robin Williams) after his genius intellect is discovered by Professor Gerald Lambeau (Stellan Skarsgård). Through their meetings, Sean helps Will confront his deepest fears and insecurities, leading to a journey of self-discovery, healing, and redemption.

Co-starring Minnie Driver as Will’s love interest Skylar, and Affleck as his loyal best friend Chuckie, Good Will Hunting was widely acclaimed by critics and audiences alike, earning nine Academy Award nominations and two wins: Best Screenplay, and Best Supporting Actor for Williams in one of his most memorable roles. A poignant exploration of personal growth and human connection. Good Will Hunting stands as a timeless and shining example of character-driven storytelling.
