Now I admit, I'm predisposed to like this film because it deals with a lot of English poets. And I think that Shakespeare is pretty great. But it is a really well made film for anyone who isn't in to that sort of thing also. Robin Williams gives what I think is the best combination of his dramatic and comedic acting of his entire career to date as Professor Keating, and the supporting cast is equally impressive. A very young Robert Sean Leonard (later to be known as Wilson on "House") stars as Keating's most eager pupil to "Carpe Diem" and gives an extremely memorable performance.
4 out of 4 stars. An amazing film, but be sure to bring your tissue box.
