Thanks for participating, and we look forward to seeing which books you choose to remember!
My Throwback this week is…
Dead Poets Society (1989) starring Robin Williams, Robert Sean Leonard, Ethan Hawke
I’m cheating a bit, as this movie is not based on a book. But it’s chock full of references to Shakespeare, Walt Whitman, Henry David Thoreau, and others, and a huge part of it takes place in a high school poetry class. So I’d say it qualifies.
Plus, this is one of my top 5 favorite movies of all time, and I’ll take any and every excuse to talk about how much I love it.
Because it is amazing and moving and beautiful.
And…and I know I basically just used gifs instead of actually telling you what I love about this movie, which is lazy and I’m sorry, but now you’ll just have to go watch it to find out. Because I forgot what day it was and now only have 5 minutes to write a post before I have to leave.
Sorry. Planning and blogging FAIL on my part. Life has been busy.
This is a blog hop! Link up your Throwback Thursday post below!
I love this movie! As a teen I remember renting it many times I was enchanted by hot guys who loved poetry as much as I did. However I’ve moved past poetry it’s been maybe 15 years since I’ve read any. I got hooked on adult paranormal books as teen and poetry was forgotten. I may have to buy a few this week. I’ve not seen it in ages time to add to netflix que. I think it’s a fabulous choice for this weeks throwback.
I loved this movie too! I even had to write an essay on it for English because it’s that awesome. Robin Williams is awesome when he’s given serious roles. Beautiful.

Oh, Robert Sean Leonard. Such a cutey. Why do I not own this movie? And the perfect pick for National Poetry Month!
Aww… Does this mean no more Throwback Thursday’s?

For now. Mandi is taking a blogging hiatus, and my well has run dry for the moment. But feel free to carry on Throwback Thursdays on your own blog! We won’t mind 🙂
