To quote the dvd's back cover, "Robin Williams delivers an extraordinary performance in one of the most compelling motion pictures of all time." Let's not forget the amazing performances of Ethan Hawke and Robert Sean Leonard.
An unforgettable movie that changes not only the lives of the students in the film, but also the viewers'.

This is yet another big classic from the 80's... Personally, I do like Robin Williams. I think he can be quite funny and it is a good thing that he tries from time to time another genre but, unfortunately, he is usually really irritating in these melodramatic movies... But, in my opinion, he is not even the worst thing in this movie... I just hate its message. The best example was when they pick ... read more

DPS is as warm a film as an electric blanket, as rich as history and as likable as any wise old man with inspiring words. First off, I'm a sucker for inspiring movies and since I have recently taken an interest in poetry, connected with John Keating because we kinda share almost the same views on life. Now, DPS is either a really great flick with scenes that you just wanna rewind over and over or ... read more

"2016/01/03 @home on Blueray with Kendra This was another of those movies that slipped through the cracks for me for one reason or another. Maybe it didn't interest me when it first came out and by the time I would have cared to watch, it was out of sight and mind. This was an enjoyable tale of how the lives of some boys at a boarding school in the 50s were changed by their new English / poetry teacher. The only part that was questionable was how boring life in the school must have been for "

Miika's Movie Diary - 2017 (250 movies items)

"17.8, DVD Dead Poets Society esittää elämänmakuisesti sisäoppilaitoksessa opiskelevien nuorten kypsymistä vanhempien ja koulutuksen konservatiivisiin malleihin. Erään hahmon kohtalo tosin tuntuu latistavan ilmiselvältä ja halvalta keinolta koittaa saada elokuvaan jonkunlaista kliimaksia ja vakavuutta."
