Dead Poets Society
Director: Peter Weir
Cast: Robin Williams, Ethan Hawke, Robert Sean Leonard, Josh Charles

A wonderfully funny and uplifting drama set in a conservative prep school in the 1950s. Robin Williams is superb as an idealistic English teacher who tries to inspire his students through poetry to seize the day and think for themselves. Tom Schulman's screenplay won an Academy Award.
