There are few movies that remind one of the importance and life-changing quality of education like Dead Poets Society.

Robin Williams is at his best as an English teacher that transforms his students’ lives through poetry. Besides teaching them, he mentors and encourages them, inspiring them to be ambitious in their pursuits inside and outside the classroom.
