Academy Award winner Robin Williams delivers a brilliant performance in one of Hollywood's most compelling and thought-provoking motion pictures. Williams portrays passionate English professor John Keating, who, in an age of crew cuts, sport coats and cheerless conformity, inspires his students to live life to the fullest, exclaiming... "Carpe diem, lads! Seize the day. Make your lives extraordinary!" The charismatic teacher's emotionally charged challenge is met by his students with irrepressible enthusiasm - changing their lives forever. Magnificently directed by Peter Weir (The Truman Show), Dead Poets Society earned unparalleled praise among audiences and critics alike. Discover for yourself what all the cheering's about.

The most boring film I have EVER seen!!! I would not recommend it - unless you have difficulty sleeping!

 Nothing dead about it

This emotionally resonant drama from sensitive director Peter Weir may fit within the confines of the Inspiring Teacher genre but earns enough extra grades thanks to its innate grace. Williams as the new English teacher at an elite school in 1959 is partly charismatic but also has a slight air of mystery about him, leaving the director to concentrate on the evolving dynamics of the young students. It also looks beautiful, building to a climax that is as inspiring as what teacher Keating was trying to impart to his pupils.

 Perfect in every way!!

I think this is one of those films that everyone should watch, it has everything you could ever need!! People of all ages can enjoy it and should!! It is amazing from every aspect you look at it from and I just wish that I had more teachers that could inspire me as much as in this film! If teachers were like this now I'd go back and do my schooling years all over again! 5* film to match the 5* casting!!
