But while at the premiere, Rorimer had the chance to speak with Damon briefly, and he said he was impressed with both Damon’s performance and the actor himself. “He clearly understood the character of my father and what he was playing,” Rorimer said. “He made some very complimentary comments about what a great guy my father was… The character as a whole was a great reflection of my father – [the] integrity, seriousness.”
After seeing the film, Rorimer said he believes the message of the film is grounded in both the past and the present. An important part of it, he said, is the artwork that has still not been returned to its original owners even now. “[The message is] honoring these individuals for what they did and making the world aware of what's unfinished,” Rorimer said.
Matt Damon, "Good Will Hunting" (1997)
"Man. I would say… no, he was a boy. It's so funny, because he's been so much more man than boy. I feel like that was the only one where he was a boy. Even the one with Jude Law ['The Talented Mr. Ripley'], 'Saving Private Ryan'… I still feel like he became a man really quickly. But he was a boy in 'Good Will Hunting.' A clever boy."
