Dead Poet's Society
Last night we watched Dead Poet's Society. It is about a group of boys at an all boys school who all have problems, some of these problems worse than others. They all deal with them in a different way. One boy loves acting but his father wouldn't allow him to do any plays and is forcing him into medical school. Because he was so sad and angry, he ended up committing suicide. His father was trying to find someone to blame. The father wanted to blame the boy's English teacher. One of the boys stood up to the dad and headmaster and was expelled.
The boy who committed suicide helped no one with this act even if he did end his own pain. He hurt himself, his dad, his mom, his friends, and he got one of his friends and his English teacher expelled.
