Dead Poets Society is about a 1950s boarding school where the new English teacher (Robin Williams) and his unorthodox approach to teaching poetry ends up inspiring a handful of students to form the titular society (technically, to reform it because Williams' character started it during his high school years, but whatever).
Citizen Rules
Elia Kazan once said of movie characters, every bad guy character should have some redeeming quality that the audience can identify with and every good character should have a dark flaw.
The late Robin Williams received an Oscar nomination for his performance as John Keaton, a new English teacher at a fancy boys' prep school who has a profound effect on his students through the formation of a very special club and his drive to have his students discover and pursue their individual passion, a drive that has unforeseen consequences on three of his students in particular.
