Sometime during high school, I watched The Dead Poet's Society on VHS. I remember thinking, "This'll be good," before watching it, and "Holy crap, that was awesome!" at the end. Watching the two-ish hour film felt more like living years within the character's lives. I laughed, cried, wondered and learned along with them. The story made me examine my own life and decisions, and has stuck with me since.
Big thanks to August McLaughlin (again!) for this engaging interview regarding The Grievers!
