Dead Poets Society (1989)

A beautiful account of a quirky teacher and how he inspired his students to “seize the day!” and be themselves. Although the drama is spread slightly thin between Todd’s, Neil’s, and Keating’s unique stories, respectively, the differing impacts of Keating’s teaching as seen in the two boys’ distinct journeys add an authentic complexity to the story as a whole. Williams, Hawke, and Leonard are all superb in their performances which ultimately pushes this film to soul-touching depths.
7.5/10 (Really Good)
