I had a scrund about a movie, cured when I read the first sentence of a summary. Thinking about it, the scrund might be considered to be correct. What was the scrund?

Did you have the scrund about the movie's: title? Characters? Plot? Actors? Cost? Production year? Double/hidden meanings?

Was there a double meaning in the title? Had you seen the movie? Or part of it? Such as a trailer? Is it older than 5 years? 10? 20? 30? 50? Is it considered a classic? Is it a horror movie?

No to rest (recalling that I haven't seen the whole movie). Are there children in the film? I don't think so; remember, I haven't seen all of it. Is the main character female? No Is your scrund related to the motives of any of the characters? Noish

HINT: The scrund is about the title. A character is relevant to the curing of the scrund.

Did you think the title said something else than it did? That (part of) the title was the name of a character, when it wasn't? Or the other way around?

Is the character name the entire film title? Is it an unusual name? Is it a nickname? The film was made in the 90s, correct?

Did you think the word described the character somehow? His actions? Motives? Personality? Someone else's actions to him? Is the word a first name? Does the name consist of one first name, and one last name?

Good Will Hunting? Yep!

**********SPOILER**********

I always knew the basic plot of the movie Good Will Hunting, but I thought that the title meant "hunting for good will." Of course, the first line of the summary I read included the main character's name: Will Hunting! That cured my scrund quickly, although if you think about it, my way kinda works.

Congrats go to Galfisk for the legwork, and Beccaann for the solve. I hope you enjoy my next puzzle at the bottom, and my "next-next" puzzle, not at the bottom...yet.
