Vermont, 1959. Todd Anderson (Ethan Hawke) begins his senior year of high school at Welton Academy, an elite prep school. He is assigned to Neil Perry (Robert Sean Leonard), one of the most promising students at Welton Academy, as his roommate and is quickly accepted by Neil's friends: Knox Overstreet (Josh Charles), Richard Cameron (Dylan Kussman), Steven Meeks (Allelon Ruggiero), Gerard Pitts (James Waterston) and Charlie Dalton (Gale Hansen).
On the first day of classes, they are surprised by the unorthodox teaching methods of their new English teacher, John Keating (Robin William), who encourages his students to make their lives extraordinary. 

Able to review one of the most important Latin authors, Horace, this film is perfect, truthful, fascinating, emotional and sublime and it's a must-see. An extraordinary Robin Williams is a perfectly oiled narrative machine that doesn't miss a beat until the end, that warms the heart and moistens the eyes of the viewer. Brilliant performances also from Ethan Hawke and Robert Sean Leonard.

I stand upon my desk to remind myself that we must constantly look at things in a different way.

No matter what anybody tells you, words and ideas can change the world.
