Before J-Lo or Winona or Gwyneth…
Before Good Will Hunting…
Before Golden Globes and Oscars and red carpets, they were just…
MATT & BEN.
Take a trip back in time with us to Massachusetts 1995. Matt Damon & Ben Affleck are just two young actors struggling to make it in the ‘biz. Suddenly, the script for Good Will Hunting magically falls from the sky and lands at their feet. Is it a gift from God? Is this fate? …or is the appearance of the mysterious script an evil curse? These two best buds are forced to put their friendship to the test as they try to determine if this script is their one-way ticket to superstardom… or if it comes at too high a cost. What’s a bro to do??
