Dead poets society [1989]

Director: Peter Weir
Writer: Tom Schulman
Stars: Robin Williams, Robert Sean Leonard and Ethan Hawke

When I write a review or an article for this blog, I do it right after I see the movie, but for this movie I didn’t have one, for some reason (can’t remember why).

However, Dead Poets Society is fantastic little movie, I presume a great indie one for his time (1990s), and you should definately see it. If not for the great actors who now you see on TV (like Robert Sean Leonard from House or Josh Charles from The Good Wife), at least for the sweet and empowering storyline and the outstanding performances by Robin Williams and a very young Ethan Hawke.

Please check it out! It is worth it!

p.s. The movie won an Oscar for best original screenplay and multiple international awards for best movie!

  1. One of my favourite movies. The scene where Todd did his impromptu poem was highligted in my blog as one of my favourite movie scenes.
