Dead Poets Society

Mr Keating is an unconventional teacher at Welton College. He breathes life and passion into English by encouraging his students to use poetry as a form of self expression, his mandate Carpe Diem or Seize the Day. The film follows seven boys: the academic with a forbidden passion for the stage, an insecure young man trying to find himself in the dark shadow of his brilliant brother, the love smitten, the rebel, the good natured, the awkward and the legalist. Dead Poets Society gave me a new perspective and inspired me to follow my dreams. Kat 19
