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.

Las películas más pendejas que he visto (99 movies items)

"La película no es mala, lo admito ¿Pero porque dicen que es una película sobre poesía si apenas hablan de eso? El resto de la película son historias de personajes genéricos. La peor fue del Simp que acosa a una porrista que tiene novio y que al final terminan juntos. Eso me daño toda la película."
