1999 , R

Educational Average: 9.0 | Entertainment Average: 9.33

Overall Average: 9.17


Genre: Drama

Starring: Robin Williams, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck
Topics: Treatment, Personality Disorder

Academy Award winner for Best Supporting Actor and Writing. Robin Williams provides psychological treatment for the main character. Some ethical violations, and at first seems like too much self-disclosure, but it served a therapeutic purpose. I'm not quite sure that the catharsis depicted truly would have cured both the Axis I and II disorders depicted in the untreated - "bad (?) " Will Hunting. Academy award winner.
