DEAD POETS SOCIETY - Directed by Peter Weir

film_-_lattimo_fuggente_di_peter_weir

"Carpe diem, seize the moment guys, make your life extraordinary". Who does not know this fantastic phrase pronounced in the wonderful film that we propose today? Literature professor John Keating is transferred to Welton Boys' College in Vermont, a cultured and passionate teacher with original teaching methods. We are in 1959 and the Welton Institute stands out for being very rigid and severe which, of course, will eventually clash with the innovative and light but very effective approach of Professor Keating's teaching methods. He will teach his students to follow their heart and their inclinations which will have to go beyond the rules already written and outdated if necessary. The above is the reason why we consider this film Sempreunagioia®, because it urges us to follow our heart and our intimate beliefs which must always be more important than any other external constraints.
