Lost The Plot is now popping up closer to you, at hand-picked venues across the city, with the same old love for films, warm vibes and exquisite outdoor settings! Our new venue, The Monalisa Kalagram is a lush green open space, tucked away in a quaint corner of Koregaon park, Lane 7. A vibrant platform for creative minds to come together over art shows, craft bazaars, book readings and workshops, it is now all set to lose the plot with us every Sunday and Wednesday.
Synopsis: In 1959, the Welton Academy is a staid but well-respected prep school where education is a pragmatic and rather dull affair. Several of the students, however, have their thoughts on the learning process (and life itself) changed when a new teacher comes to the school. John Keating (Williams) is an unconventional educator who tears chapters of his textbooks and asks his students to stand on their desks to see the world from a new angle. Keating introduces his students to poetry, and his free-thinking attitude and the liberating philosophies of the authors he introduces have a profound effect on his students. Keating urges his students to seize the day and live their lives boldly; but when this philosophy leads to an unexpected tragedy, headmaster Mr. Nolan (Norman Lloyd) fires Keating, and his students leap to his defense. Having launched the careers of actors like Ethan Hawke, this modern day classic also won Williams much critical acclaim for his truly inspirational performance. The film was nominated for four Academy Awards, including Best Picture and Best Actor for Williams; it won one, for Tom Schulman’s original screenplay.
