Good Will Hunting    More Info  Borrow
From Miramax Lionsgate.
Amazon rank #28
 
Robin Williams won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, and actors Matt Damon and Ben Affleck nabbed one for Best Original Screenplay, but the feel-good hit Good Will Huntingtriumphs because of its gifted director, Gus Van Sant. The unconventional director (My Own Private IdahoDrugstore Cowboy) saves a script marred by vanity and clunky character development by yanking soulful, touching performances out of his entire cast (amazingly, even one by Williams that's relatively schtick-free).
