The film stars Matt Damon as a janitor at MIT who likes to party and hang around the old neighborhood and whose reading consists of downloading the contents of whole libraries into his photographic memory. Stellan Skarsgard (the husband in “Breaking the Waves”).
plays Lambeau, the professor, who offers a prize to any student who can solve a difficult problem. The next morning, the answer is written on a blackboard standing in the hall. The most brilliant mind at America’s top university isn’t a student, he’s the kid who cleans the floors. Will Hunting is a headstrong, working-class genius who is failing the lessons of life.

Good Will Hunting 1997 Production:-
Matt Damon started writing the film as a final assignment for a playwriting class he was taking at Harvard University. Instead of writing a one-act play, Damon submitted a 40-page script. He wrote his then-girlfriend, medical student Skylar Satenstein.
(credited in the closing credits of the film), into his script. Damon said the only scene from that script that survived — “it survived verbatim” — was when Will Hunting (Damon) meets his therapist, Dr. Maguire (Robin Williams). He then came to Ben Affleck and.
asked him to develop the screenplay together, and the two completed the script in 1994. At first, it was written as a thriller about a young man in the rough-and-tumble streets of South Boston who possesses a superior intelligence and is targeted by the government.
with heavy-handed recruitment. Castle Rock Entertainment bought the script for $675,000 against $775,000, meaning that Damon and Affleck would stand to earn an additional $100,000 if the film was produced and they retained sole writing credit.
Castle Rock president Rob Reiner urged them to drop the thriller aspect of the story and to focus on the relationship between Will and his therapist. Terrence Malick told Affleck and Damon over dinner that the film ought to end.
with Will’s decision to follow his girlfriend. Skylar to California, not them leaving together. At Reiner’s request, screenwriter William Goldman read the script. Goldman consistently denied the persistent rumor that he wrote. Good Will Hunting 1997 download movie.

Good Will Hunting or acted as a script doctor. In his book Which Lie Did I Tell? Goldman jokingly writes, “I did not just doctor it. I wrote the whole thing from scratch,” before dismissing the rumor as false and saying his only advice was agreeing with Reiner’s suggestion.
Good Will Hunting 1997 Filming:-
Filming took place between April and June 1997. Although the story is set in Boston, and many of the scenes were done on location in the Greater Boston area, much of the interior shots were filmed at locations in Toronto.
with the University of Toronto standing in for MIT and Harvard University. The classroom scenes were filmed at McLennan Physical Laboratories (of the University of Toronto) and Central Technical School. Harvard normally disallows filming on its property.
but permitted limited filming by the project after intervention by Harvard alumnus John Lithgow. Likewise, only the exterior shots of Bunker Hill Community College were filmed in Boston; however, Sean’s office was built in Toronto as an exact replica of one at the college.
