Dead Poets Society Carpe Diem


It was exactly 22 years ago today, Carpe Diem or "Seize The Day" was on the tip of our tongues. As a senior in high school I remember my excitement for Dead Poets Society. The film stars Robin Williams as John Keating, an off-beat English professor and founder of the Dead Poets Society. 

With a bevy of beautiful prep school boy to chose from -- Ethan Hawke, Josh Charles and Robert Sean Leonard, what female teenage movie-goer wouldn't been excited to see this film? There was something about the 1950s charm combined with rich boys in sweaters and a New England backdrop that made for a heavenly choice. Again, we see the secret lives of boys I mentioned in last week's post about Explorers

Do you remember this movie?

Watch the Dead Poets Society trailer.

Surely your math is off by 20 years or so.

I love this movie! I remember obsessing about it in late high-school.

One of Robin Williams' finest works.

I still can't hear, "Oh Captain, my Captain!" without blubbering like an idiot. One of my favorites of all time! The boys were so cute!

Yeah, that movie was so powerful it gave me chills. I love Robin Williams but wouldn't see it again. I'm too wimpy.
