Radio Boston's "Set in Boston" is a monthly segment celebrating, analyzing, and better understanding Boston's depiction in entertainment (especially film). For each installment, Radio Boston speaks with local critics about a specific movie set in Boston, exploring what it can tell us about Boston's cinematic representation, and how that does or does not accurately reflect our actual Greater Boston community.
Join the Radio Boston team for a screening of Gus Van Sant's 1997 drama "Good Will Hunting," followed by a panel discussion led by host Tiziana Dearing.
About "Good Will Hunting"
The most brilliant mind at America's top university isn't a student — he's the kid who cleans the floors. Will Hunting (Matt Damon) is a headstrong; working-class genius who's failing the lessons of life. After one too many run-ins with the law, Will's last chance is a psychology professor (Robin Williams) who might be the only man who can reach him.
