Dead Poets Society grabs a bunch of talented actors, places them in a film where the story is already magnificent, and gives the audience 100% satisfaction. However, that being said, even though the film satisfies and is one of the best scripted films in it's genre, it does feel dull at times, because there aren't enough events occurring. Overall, I loved Dead Poets Society. It has emotion, comedy, life lessons and life decisions. What more can you ask for? The final act of the film is unexpected and brutal, which makes it all the more believable. This film is stunning!

Carpe Diem. Seize the day. That's the message for Knox Overstreet, Charlie Dalton, Pitts, Steven Meeks, Neil Perry, Todd Anderson and Cameron. Robin Williams stars as the upbeat teacher, John Keating, to these quite different and kids with big dreams. Todd dreams of being a writer and Neil dreams of acting on the stage in A Midsummer Night's Dream. Both will try their hardest to accomplish these goals and one will fail trying.
