Lawrence Bender is arguably one of the greatest movie producers of our generation. He has made notable films like An Inconvenient Truth, Pulp Fiction, and Good Will Hunting. Born in 1957 in the Bronx, New York City, New York, Lawrence Bender grew up in a Jewish family. While in high school, Bender didn’t think twice about film production. His main objective was to pursue a career in civil engineering, primarily for two reasons: his grandfather was a civil engineer and the career offered great jobs in that particular field. So, Bender decided to major in civil engineering at the University of Maine, graduating in 1979.
Shortly after college, Lawrence Bender became obsessed with dancing and wanted to become a professional dancer. Unfortunately, an injury permanently sidelined him. You could say that it was this injury that leads Bender into the film industry.
One of my most favourite films from Lawrence Bender is Good Will Hunting. In the film, Will Hunting faces an array of challenges during his youth. He is an orphan and is constantly abused by his family. However, Hunting has above average intelligence and mathematical ability. He demonstrates this ability while he is working as a janitor at the university. Hunting is able to solve a difficult problem with ease in the hallway. The faculty and students are amazed. Eventually, the teacher of that class ends up becoming his mentor. Will also faces challenges with his relationship with Skylar, his girlfriend. He has a hard time opening up about what he went through growing up, hiding his past from her. This is another challenge presented in the movie. Overall, I really like the movie because it shows how one can overcome tremendous challenges and reach success.
The second film that I liked most was An Inconvenient Truth. In this documentary, Al Gore explains how humans are accelerating global warming at a massive rate. He is very clear about how we are damaging the planet as well as the species living on it. All in all, it sheds like on a very controversial topic that affects all of us whether we want it to or not.
