"An Oscar-winning drama about self-discovery, free-thinking, and the unfortunate costs that sometimes comes with them." Keith Garlington, Keith and the Movies

"Part of what makes Dead Poet's Society so great is that it challenges you to think. It can inspire you to be more than a simple cog in a wheel." Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures

A new English teacher, John Keating (Robin Williams), is introduced to an all-boys preparatory school that is known for its ancient traditions and high standards. He uses unorthodox methods to reach out to his students, who face enormous pressures from their parents and the school. With Keating's help, students Neil Perry (Robert Sean Leonard), Todd Anderson (Ethan Hawke) and others learn to break out of their shells, pursue their dreams and seize the day.
