Theater Thursday: The Irish Edition

Welcome to this week's edition of Theater Thursday! With it being St. Patrick's Day we're going for a boost of Irish! This week's featured movie is Good Will Hunting

Will Hunting (Matt Damon) is a Boston boy working as a janitor at prestigious MIT. What most people don't know about him and what he doesn't even realize himself is that he has an uncanny ability for solving math equations and chemistry. His skills are so good they shock a highly skilled and brilliant math professor who decides to work with Will. 

Will not wanting to leave his sound end Boston home or his buddies like Chuckie (Ben Affleck). Along the way of his path of self discovery he meets a gorgeous girl (Minnie Driver) who makes him work towards the brass ring. All the while, wanting to stay the same for his buddies and not please people of authority who he feels are only looking out for themselves. 

I love this movie and think that the Boston Irish accents rock it even more!
Happy Saint Patrick's Day everyone!!
