About this movie

Academy Award(R) winner Robin Williams (Best Supporting Actor, Good Will Hunting, 1997) delivers one of his most memorable performances in Dead Poets Society. For generations, Welton Academy students have been groomed to live lives of conformity and tradition - until new professor John Keating inspires them to think for themselves, live life to the fullest and "Carpe Diem." This unconventional approach awakens the spirits of the students, but draws the wrath of a disapproving faculty when an unexpected tragedy strikes the school. With unforgettable characters and beautiful cinematography, Dead Poets Society will captivate and inspire you time and time again.

If only the Poet was alive. I like alive Poets more than dead Poets. Also, I like that they showed a lot of "Poets" in this movie. Small ones and big ones. Nice "poets" indeed!

Inspirador sobre el descubrir talentos y seguir sueños. De la misma línea que la sonrisa de la Monalisa
