Series: Movie Discussion Guide Bible Study
A drama about a wounded genius and how the unconditional love of a counselor, a woman, and a friend breaks the chains of his painful past.
From Scripture s tales of Saul and David to the legends of King Arthur and the presently popular stories about Harry Potter, audiences have always been engaged by the tale of the young and talented individual who must overcome difficult obstacles to realize his potential. Gus Van Sant s Good Will Hunting is one of those stories, focusing our attention on a young man with a powerful intellect who must be set free from the snares of a painful history to realize his potential.
