It’s hard to believe that Dead Poets Society was first released over 20 years ago, but now you can “Carpe Diem” and seize the Dead Poets Society Blu-ray that is now available!
This is such an iconic, ‘coming of age’ film that came about before teen dramas were all the rage. Starring Academy Award winner Robin Williams, as well as still-familiar faces Ethan Hawke & Robert Sean Leonard, the plot goes beyond the tale of a boys’ boarding school to follow the unique life stories of the boys who find themselves there for whatever the reason. What I didn’t realize until I did some deeper research was that the script was written by Tom Schulman, based on his life at the Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville – just down the road from me! Small world…
Though it’s only rated PG, quite mild for today’s ‘teen movie’ standards, I still don’t think I’m ready to let my elementary school children watch it due to it’s powerful and mature themes. However, I am excited to watch it with my hubs this weekend and see if it still makes the same impact on me now as it did when I first saw it when I was in high school (am I really that old?).
Would you like to relive the magic & memories too? Thanks to the fabulous folks at Disney, I get to give it away to one of my readers as well.
