It’s the most suitable time of the year for this fascinating movie! The Cultural Foundation’s Faneromeni 17 Arts Festival, in collaboration with “Lefkosiazo” Network of Volunteers and the Municipality of Nicosia presents the Academy Award-winning film “Good Will Hunting”.

“Some people can never believe in themselves, until someone believes in them”: the film’s beautiful tagline takes us into the world of Will Hunting, a young man from Boston’s underprivileged neighbourhoods. Trapped and haunted by his origins, family abandonment and misery, Will cleans the floor at MIT when he doesn’t hung around with his buddies, drinking beer and getting into fights. But he’s got a genius mind even though he hasn’t believed in himself yet. After solving a difficult math problem on his own, his professor offers him a way out on the condition that he sees a psychotherapist to treat his antisocial behaviour. After driving a host of therapists out of their minds, he meets up with a charismatic therapist who will go on to gain the trust and finally the love of this reckless rebel.

The screenplay by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck struck a chord with audience and critics alike for its lovely story, authenticity and genuine performances.
