Dead Poets Society
This Academy Award winning script demonstrates the dangers of encouraging lifestyles that differ from the prevailing winds of present-day culture. Robin Williams is brilliant as teacher John Keating, a man who wants his students to challenge the status quo, embrace life, and pursue their own unique interests. This is a moving story that generates late evening discussions on the true role of teaching in a world of change.
