30 Day Movie Challenge – Day 12: Favourite Love Story

The problem with finding a love story that I like — forget finding my favourite one — is that most love stories I like aren’t really love stories. They use love to jump start the story, like The CrowThe Fountain or some such. So my choice for this category is probably Good Will Hunting, a story that’s essentially a love story starring a hyper-intelligent but hyper-insecure and damaged kid. It’s about the love between Matt Damon’s character Will and Minnie Driver’s character Skylar. It’s about the love between Will and his therapist Sean (Robin Williams) and the love that Chuckie (Ben Affleck) has for him, too.

Sean: You feel like you’re alone?
Will: What?
Sean: Do you have a soul mate?
Will: Do I have a– Define that.
Sean: Somebody who challenges you.
Will: Uh, Chuckie.
Sean: No, Chuckie’s family. He’d lie down in fuckin’ traffic for you. I’m talking about someone who opens up things for you, touches your soul.

      Yeah, I don’t know exactly. I am not sure I know what a soul mate is or what that means. It seems like a very romantic term, more so than a realistic one. Hard question to answer.
