Radio Boston Presents: Good Will Hunting


Radio Boston presents "Set in Boston" live, featuring a post-film panel discussion led by host Tiziana Dearing, with film critics Ally Johnson & Tim Miller, and Bruno Guaraná or Boston University.

Radio Boston's "Set in Boston" is a monthly segment celebrating, analyzing, and better understanding Boston's depiction in entertainment (especially film). For each installment, Radio Boston speaks with local critics about a specific movie set in Boston, exploring what it can tell us about Boston's cinematic representation, and how that does or does not accurately reflect our actual Greater Boston community.

About Good Will Hunting:

The most brilliant mind at America's top university isn't a student—he's the kid who cleans the floors. Will Hunting (Damon) is a headstrong, working-class genius who's failing the lessons of life. After one too many run-ins with the law, Will's last chance is a psychology professor (Williams), who might be the only man who can reach him.

About our Speakers: 

Ally Johnson — film critic, and Editor-in-Chief,

Bruno Guaraná — master lecturer, department of film and television at Boston University

Tim Miller — film critic, Cape Cod Wave Magazine and adjunct film professor at Cape Cod Community College
