Dead Poets Society (1989)Year: 1989
Director: Peter Weir
Starring: Robin Williams, Robert Sean Leonard, Ethan Hawke
Pathologically shy Todd Anderson has been sent to the school where his popular older brother was valedictorian. His room-mate, Neil, although extremely bright and popular, is very much under the thumb of his overbearing father. The two, along with their other friends, meet Professor Keating, their new English teacher, who tells them of the Dead Poets Society, and encourages them to go against the status quo. Each in his own way, so it seems, and changed for life.
