Synopsis

Box set containing two popular drama movies starring Robin Williams. In 'Dead Poet's Society' (1989), inspiring and eccentric English teacher John Keating (Robin Williams) provokes an outbreak of creativity and idealism amongst the stuffy Welton Academy class of 1959. However, both repressed parents and more conformist staff members protest in favour of educating the pupils in a more traditional manner, with tragic results. In Good Will Hunting' (1997), Will Hunting (Matt Damon) is a teenage tearaway who works as a janitor at America's top university. He writes the solution to a maths problem on a classroom blackboard, so impressing Professor Lambeau (Stellan Skarsgard) that when Will is arrested for brawling, the professor arranges to have his sentence suspended if Will agrees to study with him. Will begins dating Skylar (Minnie Driver), a medical student, while also attending therapy sessions with Sean McGuire (Williams). Despite his genius, Will rails against both Lambeau and McGuire's attempts to help him.
