This year marks the 15th anniversary of Good Will Hunting. To celebrate this milestone, we’re releasing a special edition of the film on Blu-ray, which will be available on August 21st. Until then, we’ll be publishing some of the most memorable clips and photos from Gus Van Sant’s seminal film.
In this scene, Prof. Gerald Lambeau (played by Stellan Skarsgård) makes a rather generous proposal to Will Hunting (Matt Damon), who faces jail time after assaulting a man who bullied him as a kid. Gerald, however, has found a way for Will to avoid incarceration, as long as he agrees to study mathematics under his tutelage. The only catch, of course, is that Will would have to see a therapist, as well. Fresh off a coquettish phone call with new love interest Skyler (Minnie Driver), Will initially scoffs at Gerald’s offer, saying there’s “no way” he would ever see a psychiatrist, though that, of course, would eventually change.
