Dead Poets Society Scene 2

Scene 2

Scene 2

  • The ceremony is over, and the school lawn is filled with parents and students milling around and talking.
  • We see Todd Anderson and his parents, who introduce him to Headmaster Nolan.
  • Todd looks very intimidated and shy, especially after Headmaster Nolan tells Todd that he has big shoes to fill.
  • We learn that Todd's brother is an alumnus of the school. Todd seems to grow more nervous and exits onto the lawn with the other students.
  • Neil Perry and his father are next in line to greet Headmaster Nolan, who tells Neil he expects "great things" from him this year.
  • We cut to the lawn, where the younger boys are tearing up as they say goodbye to their parents.
