Taylor Swift's 'Fortnight' Music Video Draws Inspiration From 'Dead Poets Society'

Ethan Hawke and Josh Charles, known for their roles in Peter Weir's 1989 'Dead Poets Society' which also stars Robin Williams, make an appearance in the music video for the 'Tortured Poets Department' track.

AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift has released the music video for "Fortnight", the first single from her recently released album, "The Tortured Poets Department". The video stars Swift and Post Malone and is directed by Swift herself.

In the video, Swift plays a woman who appears to be trapped in some kind of asylum or mental institution. She is chained to a bed and forced to take pills, while Ethan Hawke and Josh Charles play scientists who conduct experiments on her. Post Malone plays a tortured lover who tries to save Swift.

The video is shot in a surreal, black-and-white style, with title cards and old-timey music. It also features some surprising moments, such as when Swift and Post Malone swap tattoos and when Swift breaks free from her chains and sets fire to poems.

In a behind-the-scenes video, Swift revealed that the video was inspired by the film "Dead Poets Society". "Tortured poets, meet your colleagues from down the hall, the dead poets," she wrote on Twitter about the cameo from Hawke and Charles.

The music video has been met with positive reviews, with critics praising its cinematography, symbolism and performances. It has also been the subject of much speculation from fans, who are trying to decode the meaning behind the visuals and lyrics.

In addition to the music video, Swift also released a "double album" expansion of "The Tortured Poets Department" titled "The Anthology". The expanded album features 15 extra songs and is now available on streaming services.
