Good Will Hunting

There are two scenes from this movie that are, and will remain, favourites to me forever.

First, when Will is touched by emotional anger that Sean, the psychiatrist who was trying to treat Will, brings about when they meet the second time. In the first scene, Sean was asked to treat Will, who was a very defensive kid, and, Will, deliberately insults Sean’s wife who was dead. The monologues in this scene are very deep in meaning. Sean’s explanation of life, love, and emotions is unmatched.

Will was said by Sean “I’d ask you about love, you’d probably quote me a sonnet. But you’ve never looked at a woman and been totally vulnerable. Known someone that could level you with her eyes, feeling like God put an angel on earth just for you. Who could rescue you from the depths of hell. And you wouldn’t know what it’s like to be her angel, to have that love for her, be there forever, through anything, through cancer. And you wouldn’t know about sleeping sitting up in the hospital room for two months, holding her hand, because the doctors could see in your eyes, that the terms “visiting hours” don’t apply to you. You don’t know about real loss, ’cause it only occurs when you’ve loved something more than you love yourself. And I doubt you’ve ever dared to love anybody that much.

Will perhaps feels confronted, and the scene closes.

 

Second, it is in this scene that the girl that Will met was being so vulnerable to him coz she loves him a lot, begs him not to leave her, but he leaves. Will’s realization of life and love later is the cause for his reunion with the girl, and the movie ends in merry! 😀

 

When the protagonist says “been totally vulnerable”, and from the meaning that I could derive, it sounds emotionally very deep. This was perhaps experienced by the Skylar, the girl, and later by Will. This movie is one of “the best” movies in all aspects. An amazing story that tells what is Life, what is Friendship, and what is Love.

Future Unknown

Out of few things I wished for while being at school, then growing up and becoming a college going boy, then, watching seniors from my hometown make their own jobs, I still see some similarity in the way I wish and hope for my future.

While I was at high school, math was very daunting. I always wished I could just become as seamless as my teacher overnight. Never did it happen, but, gradually, it became okay. While I was at college, the same story just repeated. It just took more time than my peers to get along; I still was having the same expectations as my school days. Hoping things just change all of a sudden, overnight with nearly everything I wanted! When folks from my hometown got jobs, I was travelling along with them to return to college after vacations while they returned to their jobs. As I saw them, I kept wishing that the I would graduate quickly so that I could get a decent job, make some good money.

While I wished for all these, I never felt so very daunted about whether or not I could make it, perhaps I just wasn’t too serious about them or I wasn’t just thinking about whether I could make it or not. But now, I’m wishing for a few things, and a better future. Sometimes they appear just around the corner, sometimes way too unreachable. While they say as long as we keep trying, we get to things, it is just scary and badly sulking when things get stagnant and are just out of your reach, but, yeah, future is just so unknown. The only thing we could do is just wait for it to reveal.
