Wednesday Review: Dead Poets Society

And I’m back with Wednesday Reviews, it has been far too long since I’ve updated the blog on a regular basis, and even longer since I posted a review. So I’m here to start again with a great film titled Dead Poets Society.

Dead Poets Society Title Card
Dead Poets Society was released in 1989 (almost one month before I was born in fact!) and stars Robin Williams as the title character, John Keating (Reference to the poet Geoffrey Keating perhaps?). The film, set in the 1950s, tells the tale about a group of teenagers who meet their new English teacher (Williams) and are inspired by him to challenge the status quo. Carpé diem! Seize the day boys! Make your lives extraordinary! The first time I ever watched the film was in my grade 12 Writer’s Craft class. I got so into the film I forgot that we were watching it and thought I was actually a part of it. So when it came to the climactic ending (which I won’t spoil for those of you who haven’t seen it) I shouted out at the television in concern for the character. This of course resulted in the entire class telling me to shut up and myself apologetically saying “Sorry, I got really into the movie”. When moments like that occur, and you find yourself submersed in the fictional word, forgetting it is only a film, you know you’ve got a good movie. Anyway, enough of my personal introduction to the film, on with the review!

Review after the break.
