What you get is a solid 1080 transfer (not sure if it's 1080i or 1080p) and nice DTS Lossless Master Audio at a great price. Yes, this release is barebones, but what do you expect considering how inexpensive it is? If you just want the movie, this is a great deal. If you want extras, get this and a used copy of the DVD... or wait for the official U.S. release (which will be more expensive).

I have no complaints and am happy with this purchase.

Genius is a fleeting thing. As Gus Van Sant's "Good Will Hunting" shows, one can dedicate his entire life to mastering an academic discipline . . . only to be one-upped by the janitor. Matt Damon made his cinematic break-through portraying Will Hunting, the MIT janitor who is a master of mathematics but a basket case in the more personal aspects of life. He is the janitor at MIT who catches the eye of Professor Lambeau (Stellan Skarsgard) who sees the unlimited potential in Hunting even if Hunting himself can't see it. Yet, the trauma of Hunting's life has taken its toll on the boy and Lambeau hopes counseling by his old college roommate, Sean McGuire (Robin Williams) can help undo the psychological damage. Supported by Skylar (Minnie Driver), a Harvard student, and his best friend Chuckie (Ben Affleck), Hunting begins to make strides and come to grips with his past.
"Good Will Hunting" basically came out of nowhere in 1997 and captured the imagination of the viewing public. It was a reminder that solid films could still be made without $100 million budgets. It was also the film that made both Damon and Affleck household names, won Robin Williams his first Oscar, and gave director Gus Van Sant (of "Drugstore Cowboy" and "To Die For" fame) his first major commercial success. It was a straightforward character study fueled by strong individual performances and clever dialogue which emulated films of an earlier era that reveled in its simplicity and not its bombast. "Good Will Hunting" will never be mistaken for a Hollywood epic but it still endears as a little cinematic gem from the 1990's.

Format: Blu-ray
In regards to the 2009 blu-ray release from Alliance, it is in fact 1080p (not 1080i as the back cover states). English 5.1 DTS HD-MA (and 5.1 Dolby Digital in english and french as well). No subtitles. No special features.
But it's been clarified many times now that the movie is indeed 1080p.

****UPDATE****
New versions of Good Will Hunting have been released on blu-ray:
A blu-ray + DVD + digital copy combo pack (released in 2011)
A blu-ray + digital copy 15th anniversary edition (released in 2012)
Both of these newer editions contain special features as well (with the 15th anniversary edition having a bonus exclusive 4-part retrospective that runs about 1 hour and a 17 minute interview with Matt Damon)

Robin Williams - brilliant as always. Matt Damon - a brilliant debut! I love this movie, and recommend it to anyone who appreciates a beautifully made movie and wonderful performances.

It's a must see and a must have for any video library. Excellent story and reality. What's it like to be a genius on the "wrong side of the tracks"? or how really smart people can end up using that to build walls. Top of the line acting.

Are we actually supposed to feel sorry for this obnoxious brat who is the star of this movie? Im surprised anyone would put up with his attitude for even one day. His fatal flaw is that he had a traumatic childhood. Poor baby, do you want your pacifier? And then comes in the all-knowing, wise guru, Robin Williams. He thinks he can help Will, but there are many scenes where they just sit there and nothing happens. Even in the scenes where they do talk, its a bunch of nonsense anyway. To me, Will's character was not plausable. The mathematical magic just flows through him without any effort.
