To kick off Back to School Month, The Madames are discussing Good Will Hunting, released in 1997.

And they have A LOT to talk about when it comes to this modern classic, including…

  • The movie’s indictment of toxic masculinity
  • How the hell two 20-somethings wrote this screenplay
  • The genius that was Robin Williams
  • Gus Van Sant’s low-key masterclass on production design 

Last but not least, we wonder if Ben Affleck married JLo in Chucky’s white tracksuit. 

Good Will Hunting is directed by Gus Van Sant and stars Matt Damon, Robin Williams, Stellan Skarsgard, Minnie Driver, Ben Affleck, and Casey Affleck.
