DEAD POETS SOCIETY at the Art (Robin Williams 1951-2014)
To honor the life & career of Robin Williams, one of the most kinetic & genuine performers of cinema, we're playing DEAD POETS SOCIETY from a DCP.

DEAD POETS SOCIETY won our poll for favorite Robin Williams film.

Monday, 9/1 7:30PM

Robin Williams stars as an English teacher who doesn't fit into the conservative prep school where he teaches, but whose charisma and love of poetry inspires several boys to revive a secret society with a bohemian bent. Director Peter Weir (The Truman Show) adds layers of emotional depth in scenes of conflict between the kids and adults. (A subplot involving one father's terrible pressure on his son--played by Robert Sean Leonard--to drop his interest in theater reaches heartbreaking proportions.) Williams is given plenty of latitude to work in his brand of improvisational humor, though it is all well-woven into his character's style of instruction.

"Story sings whenever Williams is onscreen. Screen belongs just as often to Leonard, who as Neil has a quality of darting confidence mixed with hesitancy. Hawke, as the painfully shy Todd, gives a haunting performance." -Variety
