Peter Weir’s one of the most beautiful direction , Dead Poets Society is a theatrical approach towards life, goals, love and passion. This film has more significance than any normal youth inspiring movie.
It indeeds teaches us how to teach someone and through Keating, Peter has shown the most ideal teacher a student can desire for. He teaches things practically and philosophically.
Dead Poets Society is not just a film about poetry and beauty, it’s more than that. It conveys different kinds of stories through it’s young and bright characters.
Niel Perry wants to do something different than what his parents want, Todd Anderson is shy and frightened, Knox Overstreet is a romantic and Charlie Dalton is the most honest as well as brave enough to arrange a phone call with God to his headmaster.
The characters distinguish themselves and are more relatable that way. There is always a guy who is more loyal to the headmaster and is irritating to the group played by Richard Cameron.
The acting performance by Robin Williams is one of the best performances by him and he is still remembered as John Keating. Sadly, the gem is no more with us.
Peter Weir’s direction is top notch and he is even successful in making the sad ending a cherishing one. The events of suicide and torture by college authorities are shown to be faced bravely by the students.
Dead Poets Society was a commercial hit and received positive reviews from critics. It was nominated for the Academy Awards for the Best Picture and Best Actor award. John Keating was nominated for the Best Actor award second time.
