16 January 2011 2:36 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Trevor Hogg continues his Peter Weir retrospective with a look at the director's Academy Award-nominated eighth feature...

Dead Poets Society, 1989.

Directed by Peter Weir.

Starring Robin Williams, Robert Sean Leonard, Ethan Hawke, Kurtwood Smith, Gale Hansen, Josh Charles, Dylan Kussman, Allelon Ruggiero, James Waterston and Norman Lloyd.


English Literature teacher John Keating runs afoul of conservative-minded administrators and parents at a prestigious New England prep school when he encourages his pupils to “Seize the day!”.

The major problem with inspirational teacher and sports movies is that most are hokey and sentimental. With the skilled direction of renowned Australian film-maker Peter Weir, an intelligent original screenplay by Tom Schulman, and a bitter sweet dramatic performance by Robin Williams, Dead Poets Society rises above the mediocrity of The Empire Club and Mona Lisa Smile to obtain the gold standard set by the likes of Goodbye, Mr. Chips and To Sir, With Love. »
