S01E03: Dead Poet’s Society

Ethan and Talia discuss Peter Weir’s 1989 Dead Poet’s Society. How director Peter Weir captured the natural interactions of schoolboys; we realise that a large number of our favourite films feature Ethan Hawke; and how this film caused Ethan to spend months in India at the age of eighteen.
