La sociedad de los poetas muertos

Tom Schulman 1989


Un maestro en un colegio privado emplea métodos poco convencionales para inspirar las vidas de sus estudiantes.


A young boy, dressed in a school uniform and cap, fidgets as his mother
adjusts his tie.

		Now remember, keep your shoulders back.

A student opens up a case and removes a set of bagpipes. The young
boy and his brother line up for a photograph

		Okay, put your arm around your brother.
		That's it. And breathe in.

The young boy blinks as the flash goes off.

		Okay, one more.

An old man lights a single candle. A teacher goes over the old
man's duties.

		Now just to review, you're going to
		follow along the procession until you
		get to the headmaster. At that point
		he will indicate to you to light the
		candles of the boys.

		All right boys, let's settle down.

The various boys, including NEIL, KNOX, and CAMERON, line up holding
banners. Ahead of them is the old man, followed by the boy with the
bagpipes with the two youngest boys at the front.

		Banners up.

The boys hoist the banners and the bagpipes begin to play loudly. The
small group marches out of the room and down a set of stairs into a
church. The pews are filled with students and parents while the
teachers, all dressed in robes, are seated at the front of the church
behind the headmaster.

The boys break off to either side at the front of the church. The
bagpipes cease and the headmaster, MR. NOLAN, walks over to the old
man carrying the candle.
