Good Will Hunting
I choose this movie because its a great movie about attachment theory. This trailer is not very good compared to the whole movie, but it shows well the importance of parents or the harm that can come from not having parents.
The movie is about the how Will Hunting who is a genius grows up without a family, except for the guys who he has grown up with his whole life, is founded by a major mathematician and is asked to help him with math. Will is a hard nose guy who has a hard time connecting with anyone until he runs into a therapist played by Robin Williams. He is about to connect and help Will deal with a lot of his past, and helps him have a better future then he has before.
The reason I choose this movie is because it deals with attachment theory which is what we talked about in last class. This is a very important topic to myself because my parents divorced when I was 3 months old.
