Are you a movie buff or an occasional cinemagoer? Do old flicks bore you or are you a fan of the classics? Either way, there are many must-see movies out there that are crucial to becoming a truly cultured viewer. I’ve highlighted five less prominent movies that are definitely on the list.
1. Good Will Hunting
Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, a dynamic duo, teamed up to write Good Will Hunting, which features Will Hunting, an unschooled genius with a jarring past and extensive criminal record. While working as a janitor at MIT, Will’s unimaginable intelligence is discovered by Professor Gerald Lambeau, who takes Will under his wing to foster his talents.
Robin Williams also stars in one of his best roles as Will’s therapist, who attempts to drag him out of his hardened exterior. A dive into the drinking culture of the 20-somethings of South Boston, Good Will Hunting will tug at your heartstrings and toy with the provocative questions of purpose and destiny.
