His roommate, Neil Perry, although exceedingly bright and popular, is very much under the thumb of his overbearing father. The two, along with their other friends, meet Professor Keating, their new English teacher, who tells them of the Dead Poets Society, and encourages them to go against the status quo.

Trivia What attracted Robin Williams to the role of John Keating more than anything else was that he was the type of teacher he, in his school days, always wished he had. However, Charlie takes things too far when he publishes an article in the school newspaper in the club's name demanding that girls be admitted to Welton.
Nolan paddles Charlie to coerce him into revealing who else is in the Dead Poets Society, but he resists. Nolan also speaks with Keating, warning him that he should discourage his students from questioning authority.
Keating does admonish the boys in his manner , warning that one must assess all consequences. Thomas discovers Neil's involvement in the play and demands he quit on the eve of the opening performance. Devastated, Neil goes to Keating, who advises him to stand his ground and prove to Thomas that his love of acting is something he takes seriously. As the play is about to begin, Neil claims to Keating that his father will allow him to stay in acting. However, it is unclear whether Thomas' decision was the direct result of Neil talking to him.
Thomas unexpectedly shows up at the performance, and despite his son receiving a standing ovation, he takes Neil home and says he has been withdrawn from Welton, only to be enrolled in a military academy to prepare him for Harvard so he will become a doctor. Unable to find the courage to stand up to his father, Neil commits suicide by gunshot.
Nolan investigates Neil's death at the request of the Perry family who are unwilling to take any responsibility for Neil's death, while a devastated Todd realizes that it was Neil's father who drove his son to kill himself. Cameron blames Neil's death on Keating to escape punishment for his own participation in the Dead Poets Society, and names the other members.
Confronted by Charlie, Cameron urges the rest of them to let Keating take the fall. Charlie punches Cameron and is expelled. Each of the boys is called to Nolan's office to sign a letter attesting to the truth of Cameron's allegations, even though they know they are false. When Todd's turn comes, he is reluctant to sign, but does so after seeing that the others have complied and succumbing to his parents' pressure. Keating is fired and Nolan takes over teaching the class, with the intent of adhering to traditional Welton rules.
Keating interrupts the class to gather his leftover belongings. As he leaves, Todd—finding his voice—reveals to Keating that the boys were intimidated into signing the paper that sealed his fate, and Keating assures Todd that he believes him.
Todd, in a moment of clarity, then stands up on his desk, with the words " O Captain! My Captain! Touched by this gesture, Keating proudly thanks the boys and departs. In late , Weir met with Jeffrey Katzenberg at Disney which produced the movie via Touchstone Pictures , who suggested Weir read a script recently received.
On a flight back to Sydney, Weir was captivated and six weeks later returned to Los Angeles to cast the principal characters. The original script was written by Tom Schulman , based on his experiences at the Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville, Tennessee , particularly with his inspirational teacher Samuel Pickering. This was removed by Weir who deemed it unnecessary, claiming this would focus audiences on Keating's illness and not on what he stood for.
Early notes on the script from Disney also suggested making the boys' passion dancing rather than poetry as well as a new title Sultans of Swing focusing on the character of Mr. Keating rather than the boys themselves, but both were dismissed outright. Filming started in the winter of and took place at St. During filming, Robin Williams used to crack many jokes on set, which Ethan Hawke found incredibly irritating. For the scene where Todd Anderson is spontaneously incited by John Keating to make a poem in front of the class, Williams apparently made a joke saying that Hawke was intimidating, which Hawke later realized was serious and that the joke referred to his earnestness and intensity as a young man.
Ironically, Hawke's first agent signed with Hawke once Williams told him that Hawke would "do really well". The site's critical consensus reads, "Affecting performances from the young cast and a genuinely inspirational turn from Robin Williams grant Peter Weir's prep school drama top honors. The Washington Post reviewer called it "solid, smart entertainment", and praised Robin Williams for giving a "nicely restrained acting performance".
Roger Ebert 's review was largely negative, only giving the film two out of four stars. He criticized Williams for spoiling an otherwise creditable dramatic performance by occasionally veering into his onstage comedian's persona, and lamented that for a movie set in the s there was no mention of the Beat Generation writers.
Additionally, Ebert described the film as an often poorly constructed "collection of pious platitudes The movie pays lip service to qualities and values that, on the evidence of the screenplay itself, it is cheerfully willing to abandon. Movie historian Leonard Maltin gave the picture a middling review: "Well made, extremely well acted, but also dramatically obvious and melodramatically one-sided. Nevertheless, Tom Schulman's screenplay won an Oscar. John Simon , writing for National Review , said Dead Poets Society was the most dishonest film he had seen in some time.
