Great film

A Great film! Excellent was the condition. I use this in a class I teach. I am thankful that I use Alibris as a merchandiser for the classes which I teach as well as a vendor for gifts that I give.

Carpe Diem

A simply timeless cinematic piece. With all the movies made about teachers and students, Dead Poets Society is in at the head of the class. If only everyone in the world can think back to their elementary or high school years and remember the one who have impacted us and made us who we are. Robin Williams plays an unconventional English teacher at a conservative prep school. His bizarre antics and charisma inspires and drives the boys in his class to search deeper within themselves. If initially as a form of rebellion or lashing out, they soon discover more to this secret society. A powerful movie with an inspiring message. Seize the day.
