Episode 49: Peter Weir's 'Dead Poets Society' (1989)

Episode Summary

I saw 'Dead Poets Society' for the first time when I was a teenager. It was a revelatory film for me because of the way it celebrated the power of literature and poetry. In this episode, I talk about why the film means so much to me. I also provide behind-the-scenes information about the making of the film and even discuss criticisms that it has received over the years. Full show notes: https://simplecast.com/s/4357ce4d
