Lawrence Bender is by far one of the best film producers in the world. Born on October 17, 1957, the producer grew up in the Bronx, New York City, New York to a Jewish family. While in high school, Lawrence Bender wanted to become a civil engineer. One of the reasons was because his grandfather was a civil engineer and another reason was that there were good jobs in that field. After graduating high school, Bender enrolled at the University of Maine to pursue a degree in civil engineering. In 1979, Bender graduated from the University of Maine with his degree in civil engineering.
After graduating from college, Bender began to love dance. It was his dream to become a professional dancer, but an injury permanently sidelined him. This injury ultimately lead him to the film industry.
Bender has created many great films that many of us know like Pulp Fiction, Inglorious Basterds, and Good Will Hunting. Another notable film was a documentary done with Al Gore called An Inconvenient Truth.
My favorite film of Lawrence Bender would have to go to Good Will Hunting. In the movie, Will Hunting grows up as an orphan and is physically abused throughout the years. As anyone would do, he hides his past. One thing that no one knows about Hunting is that he is a math genius. One night while he is working as a janitor at the university, he solves a difficult math problem that astounds many professors and students. One night, a professor tracks down Will and later becomes his mentor. Will Hunting is faced with another challenge when it comes to his girlfriend, Skylar. Like I said earlier, he doesn’t like to open up about his past and Skylar wanted to get to know him. In the end, I like this movie because of the challenges that Will had to overcome throughout the film.
Another film that I enjoyed a lot is An Inconvenient Truth. In this article, Al Gore explains how humans are accelerating global warming and how it must be stopped. In the end, Lawrence Bender is a fantastic film producer.
