Introduction
Good Will Hunting is a 1997 drama film directed by Gus Van Sant and written by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, both of whom star in the film.

Set in Boston, Massachusetts, it tells the story of Will Hunting (Damon), a troubled Irish Catholic young man from South Boston who, although a prodigy and autodidact, works as a janitor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Will must learn to overcome his deep fear of abandonment in order to learn how to trust and love the people who care about him.

Good Will Hunting was a financial success, earned widespread critical praise and several awards, and launched Damon and Affleck into prominence.

Plot
Though Will Hunting (Matt Damon) has a genius-level intellect and a profound gift for mathematics, he works as a janitor at MIT and lives alone in a sparsely furnished apartment in a rundown South Boston neighborhood. An abused foster child, he subconsciously blames himself for his unhappy upbringing and turns this self-loathing into a form of self-sabotage in both his professional and emotional lives. Hence, he is unable to maintain either a steady job or a steady romantic relationship.

In the first week of class, Will solves a difficult graduate-level problem taken from algebraic graph theory that Professor Gerald Lambeau, a Fields Medalist, leaves on a chalkboard as a challenge posed to his students, hoping someone might find the solution by the end of the semester....
