In February 2018 we chose a movie for you:
“Dead Poets Society”
Written by: Tom Schulman
Directed by: Peter Weir
Starring: Robin Williams
Running time: 128’
Plot: The movie talks about a group of students attending the high school, the “Welton Academy” , an all-male, elite school. The teacher John Keating (Robin Williams) uses a quite particular teaching method: he encourages his students to make their lives extraordinary (“carpe diem”). One of these students, Neil, discovers his love for acting and gets the role in a local production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream; anyway his father does not agree with his decisions. Professor Keating helps him to realize his potential becoming really important in Neil’s life. The night of the performance Neil’s father goes to see him performing his role on the stage, but then he obliges his son to be enrolled in a military academy. After this talk with his father, Neil eventually commits suicide.
We choose this movie because in this period many Tv Series talk about suicide between teenager population (we talk about this topic in our section Something to talk about in these suggestions: “TV Series & Suicide: The End Of The F****ing World & 13 Reasons Why“; “Echoes of the TV series “13 reasons why” release: an ongoing scientific debate“), and this about 20 years old movie present us an important topic of how can be difficult to relate with young’s problems.
