||Plot Summary for
Dead Poets Society (1989)
Painfully shy Todd Anderson has been sent to the school where his popular older brother
was valedictorian. His room-mate, Neil, although exceedingly bright and popular, is very
much under the thumb of his overbearing father. The two, along with their other friends,
meet Professor Keating, their new English teacher, who tells them of the Dead Poets
Society, and encourages them to go against the status quo. Each, in their own way, does
this, and are changed for life.
