4 Affleck, Ben & Matt Damon & Gus Van Sant Good Will Hunting A Screenplay
New York Miramax 1998 0786883448 / 9780786883448 Stated First Edition; Fifth Printing Paperback Very Good 
Unmarked. Book has appearance of light use with no easily noticeable wear. ; Book Description; Spine has no signs of creasing. Pages are clean and not marred by notes or folds. Covers are square with minor wear. Ships Safe and Fast. As director Gus Van Sant observes in the introduction to Matt Damon's and Ben Affleck's screenplay Good Will Hunting, the two young actors somewhat resemble the characters they play in the film: they're best friends, and Affleck (who plays Chuckie) habitually chauffeurs Damon (Will), who doesn't drive. Van Sant says we can see how badly Damon drives by watching the film's last scene, in which he is actually driving the car with the camera mounted on it. But Damon and company write better than he drives; this script contains some of the boldest, best monologues since Pulp Fiction.Van Sant and cast member Robin Williams helped the young actors tame the tigers in their cranial tanks, trimming the script into a precision instrument. Though the stills from the film are not perfectly matched to their places in the script, this story remains as much a joy to read as it is towatch on the big screen.; B&W Photographs; 9 X 5.90 X 0.60 inches; 144 pages

Unmarked, except for library stickers on outside covers. ; Book Description: Library book with some external library stickers, otherwise in very good crisp condition. T. S. Eliot's verse dramatization of the murder of Thomas Becket at Canterbury, winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature The Archbishop Thomas Becket speaks fatal words before he is martyred in T. S. Eliot's best-known drama, based on the murder of the Archbishop of Canterbury in 1170. Praised for its poetically masterful handling of issues of faith, politics, and the common good, T. S. Eliot's play bolstered his reputation as the most significant poet of his time.

In it you will hear echoes - 'Humankind cannot bear very much reality' - taken up in 'Burnt Norton'...this was Robert Donat's finest performance. - Christina Hardyment, The Times --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
