Dead Poets Society

by Anonymous

My Law of Attraction movie is Dead Poets Society. The first time I saw Dead Poets Society was shortly after high school. The characters were in school and dealing with the same struggles and issues that I was at the time.

After graduation there was a period in my life that was so confusing. My father wanted me to be in the military so I would have good retirement and benefits. All three of my brothers had joined. My mother died when I was eleven and my father was raising his daughter like a son. When I refused and questioned joining the military he went ballistic. In this sense I had a strong connection to the character of Neil. Neil's father totally ignores the fact that his son is an artistic soul who loves poetry and acting. Neil's father only sees him as a reflection of himself and not as a separate human being with his own passions.

There are few people who have seen Dead Poets Society and were not inspired by John Keating or the former Rhodes Scholar turned English professor. As he penetrates the hearts and minds of his students he allows them to honestly delve into their own hearts and souls to uncover what life is really all about. "that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse" Keating quotes Walt Whitman. Carpe diem. Seize the day. Seize your life. You cannot live your life for someone else. You must listen to your own intuition and inner voice. Any one who tries to drown out your own voice must be silenced. No parent should ever treat their child like Neil's father. He was slowly killing him his entire life.
