Dead Poets Society (Общество мёртвых поэтов)
Dead Poets Society is a 1989 American drama film directed by Peter Weir. This story tells us about Welton Academy and actions which happen in the autumn of 1959. The main characters are students of this school: Todd Anderson (Ethan Hawke), Neil Perry (Robert Sean Leonard) and their six friends.
On the first day of classes, they are surprised by the new English teacher John Keating (Robin Williams) who encourages his students to “make their lives extraordinary” and he uses Latin expression “carpe diem”.
They speak about poetry and their own individual styles. While Keating was at Welton he was a member of the unsanctioned “Dead Poets Society”. Neil restarts the club and he and his friends sneak off campus to cave where they read poetry and verse, as well as their own compositions.
The plot focuses on the lives of teenagers, development of their interests and them as individuals. As for me, this movie is rather interesting, the cast is amazing, the script is very well-written.
Being a books lover, I was interested by the idea of creating the same club where we could discuss poetry and our own compositions. Also, I should add that a lot of good thoughts are put into this movie. It conveys the message of swimming against the current, following your heart voice and reaching your goals, that is always good. Everyone makes a choice: either to go with the flow and take the seat prepared for you by the society, or to build a raft to find your island in the ocean of cold and sometimes even cruel life.
At the website, the film is rated eight out of ten. I really enjoyed the film and it was a good way to spend two hours. Someone supports such ideas as I but for someone the film may seem stupid. In order to make up conclusions, you should watch it. Dead Poets Society is well worth seeing.
