Dead Poets Society (1989) – A Tribute to Robin Williams

Like many people we were knocked for six when we heard about the recent and tragic death of Robin Williams.

With so many films to choose from , how could we decide upon just one? We decided to let Bedford choose and after the votes were counted it was Dead Poets Society that was the winning choice.

With the help of our friends at The Pad we bring you a charity screening of Dead Poets Society which will raise awareness and funds for MIND – BLMK.

Director: Peter Weir

Cast: Robin Williams, Robert Sean Leonard, Ethan Hawke

Genre: Drama    Country: USA    Language: English    Year: 1989

Duration: 128 mins    Rating: PG    IMDB Score: 8/10

Supported by
Screening partner.

Painfully shy Todd Anderson has been sent to the school where his popular older brother was valedictorian. His room-mate, Neil, although exceedingly bright and popular, is very much under the thumb of his overbearing father. The two, along with their other friends, meet Professor Keating, their new English teacher, who tells them of the Dead Poets Society, and encourages them to go against the status quo. Each, in their own way, does this, and are changed for life.

Written by Liz Jordan

We will also be allowing younger generations to enjoy the talents of Robin Williams at this year’s film festival. More details to be announced soon.
