Good Will Hunting is a phenomenal film that proved to be one of the most uplifting and heartwarming stories I've ever seen. Matt Damon and Robin Williams were both incredible and gave performances that brought me to tears several times throughout the film.
This film shows that anybody can achieve anything as long as they have the drive and people to help along the way, which is a message that pretty much anybody can relate to. Robin Williams proves to be the definite standout, with two specific scenes standing out among the rest as some of the most powerful scenes in his entire career (You'll know which two when you watch the film). I was beyond impressed with this and recommend it to anybody looking for a touching story.
