Men in Film: Good Will Hunting

We are all Will, even if we don’t care to admit it too often. We are wandering blindly in an effort to grasp what great purpose might lead us forward into becoming men, husbands, fathers, mentors, or in our deepest dreams, heroes. We, cocky in an effort to hide our uncertainty, waiting for someone to pull us aside and whisper in our ear, “you passed, you’re a man now.” – Chris Cantoni, “Who We Choose To Be”

Great essay on manhood in the context of Good Will Hunting on Bright Wall Dark Room.
