I will see you again when the flower buds bloom in the spring
And they will bloom, just for you
Every year since the day you stepped out of this world
I will wait here
And receive you with a soft kiss on pale cheeks
And together we'll float through our enchanted forest
Till the leaves turn red and winter approaches
And then I too will rest
Until next spring you wake me like a melody from a faded memory

mr keatings is invaluable
some reasons why i love dead poets:
•i really love how relatable and relevant it is??? from todd being too shy to read out his poem to neil wanting to follow his dreams but being held back by his parents because of his studies; the characters were so well written and really made me feel like i was a part of their group
•just the fact that mr keatings (played by one of my favourite actors of all time) was the embodiment of a perfect teacher. have i dreamt about reciting poetry in dark caves and standing up on desks and ripping apart books that try to define poetry?? yes i have. and it's all because of this film.
•just the entire aesthetic- from the old school building to the uniforms and the autumn leaves and muted earthy tones, this film was very pleasant to watch.
•i can't talk about this film without mentioning the beautiful phrases! i sound my barbaric yawp over the rooftops of the world! two roads diverged in the wood and i...i took the one less travelled by... and that has made all the difference (who doesnt love a good robert frost quote?) and of course- carpe diem. the phrase that i and many other devoted fans of the film recite to ourselves every once in a while when life seems too gray.
•i have only one thing to say- the entire dialogue of mr keatings about how science, maths and other subjects are necessary for life; but art is necessary because it keeps our soul alive. this made me smile so big the first time i watched it.
•teenage romance!! the entire dynamic between chris and knox was so heart warming. even when he didnt get the girl, Knox's constant attempts and his giddy feelings of love were so adorable to watch.
•just the way they showed Neil's death- silent, yet a real heartbreaker. we were rooting for him! we needed him to follow his dreams! and yet when the gunshot was heard, we all fell apart.
•Todd's reaction was so apt. the boy he looked up to, his friend, his companion- a person he resonated with just disappeared from his life. seeing this scene just made our hearts break a little more, made the tears fall down a little harder. it just hit us right where it hurts.
overall, just a film i am willing to watch a million times over!!
