Will’s youth has been destroyed. He lives in violence and poverty. He’s the impossibility of a janitor being a world class genius. Good Will Hunting is the irony of beauty amid destruction. Love in pain. Joy in misery.

Social death driven by ‘unacceptable’ acts was in Britain at least, once worse than physical death. We only need to examine literary history to see it.
