Set in 1959 at a fictional all-male preparatory school called Welton Academy, the film starred Robin Williams as John Keating, a charismatic English teacher who encourages his students to “seize the day” (“carpe diem” in Latin) and embrace the passion for life expressed by great poets like Walt Whitman. 
The film was directed by Peter Weir and written by Tom Schulman. It was based on Schulman’s life at the Montgomery Bell Academy in Nashville, TN. Filming took place at St. Andrews School in Middletown, Delaware and surrounding areas.
