Good Will Hunting: Music From The Motion Picture - Various Artists on 2LP
The original soundtrack to the Academy Award winning 1997 film, Good Will Hunting, directed by Gus Van Sant and written and starring Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, effectively mirrors the desires and lives that the movie capitalizes on i.e. restlessness, ennui, doubt and unrequited love. Elliott Smith contributes the most material and the best songs including the Academy Award nominated "Miss Misery," beautifully melancholic numbers that wonderfully support Danny Elfman's somber original score (from which two compositions are included here). The 2LP-set also features a handful of pop songs from a diverse selection of other artists like the Waterboys, Luscious Jackson, Gerry Rafferty, Andru Donalds, the Dandy Warhols and Al Green.
