DEAD POETS SOCIETY (Theatrical Release USA 1989)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.5|5.0 Starsìììì

Dead Poets Society is an ode to living the life you were meant to live. It’s a rock-hard testimony to the importance of individuality and choosing to see life with fresh eyes. The film is well supported by Robin Williams’ unending charisma and becomes one of his best films. The all-boy cast supports Robin Williams well. Watch for Kurtwood Smith (That 70s Show) in the film.

Storyline

John Keating (Robin Williams) is hired to teach English at Wellton. He is a free thinker and belonged to the Dead Poets Society—a disapproved club. His students decide to restart the club and begin meeting secretly off campus. Keating’s encouragement for them to live their lives as individuals and to seek their own purpose in life ruffles the staid atmosphere of the college and leads to conflict with head masters, parents, and students.
