Set in a New England boarding school, Robin Williams stars as an inspirational English teacher who helps the young men under his tutelage find their passions through poetry and the arts. Fighting against an uptight administration all the way, Williams shines in one of his earlier starring roles, proving his dramatic talent while never losing sight of the manic comic energy he was most famous for. Working from an Oscar-winning script, Peter Weir directs with the sort of spirit embodied in Williams’s performance. Carpe diem! (35mm presentation)
